Specifically engaging with contemporary art examples, this is a comprehensive introduction designed to help students studying aesthetics for the first time to master the subject. Guiding readers through major problems, issues and debates in aesthetics, this is a bias-free introduction for students studying the philosophy of art for the first time. Each chapter of the book begins by considering a particular work of art - from contemporary conceptual art, through literature to TV Soap Operas - to help students understand and explore key philosophical discussions and ideas. "Aesthetics and the Philosophy of Art: An Introduction" covers such topics as: definitions and the ontology of art; interpretation and intention; aesthetic properties and evaluation; emotion and the arts; and, art and morality. In addition to chapter summaries and outlines helping the reader to navigate the major topics covered, this book also includes annotated guides to further reading and 'unresolved questions' sections to help encourage and animate study and discussion beyond the text. With a final chapter, pointing students to more advanced discussions in contemporary aesthetics from aesthetics and nature to 'everyday aesthetics' this is the most complete introduction available for those seeking to master the subject.

Crisp summaries focus on the main ideas for each chapter. -- Susan Feagin, Research Professor, Department of Philosophy at Temple University, USA and Editor, The Journal Of Aesthetics And Art Criticism
