Emotions and the Arts 6. Art and Morality 7. Written in a clear and fresh style, this comprehensive textbook provides an accessible and engaging entry point for students to the central philosophical issues in the arts. An excellent resource for students and academics alike.
Hudson Hick judges the current vibe among students exceptionally well. Recent and contemporary examples of art, literature, music and film, prompt the kind of questions that lead naturally to the key concepts and theories presented in this book. Drawing mostly from analytic aesthetics, as well as continental philosophy on interpretation, the book provides a genuine opportunity to develop understanding of art and its reception.
And while the level at which the text is pitched is appropriate for beginners, the dialectic occasions the kind of critical debate that will also engage the more advanced student.
