MEDIA REVIEWS
"To my knowledge, Lamarque and Olsen's anthology is the most comprehensive and judiciously put-together collection of its kind to date. It includes all of the authors one can think of on anyone's list of the major contributors to the late twentieth-century analytic tradition in aesthetics and philosophy of art. It is both deep and broad. If you are going to a desert island, and baggage space is limited, this is definitely the collection on the subject you want to take with you. The period covered by Lamarque and Olsen's anthology is one of the richest in the history of the discipline: a veritable golden age of philosophical speculation on art and the aesthetic that, I am glad to say, is not over yet, and to which this volume will be a major contribution." Peter Kivy, Rutgers University "A sparkling compilation of essential readings, balancing classics in analytic aesthetics with recent developments, all skilfully arranged to capture every reader's interests. An incomparable achievement." Dominic McIver Lopes, University of British Columbia
