This collection brings together the text of the monograph Art and Morality by the philosopher Richard Beardsmore along with fourteen other essays (both published and previously unpublished) in which he explores further some of the themes of his seminal book. With the revival of interest among philosophers and others in the relationships between art and morality the publication of this material is especially timely. Beardsmore's original contribution first introduced the principal terminology in which discussions have been expressed and many of the later essays showed the influence of Wittgenstein. The publication of this anthology of his writings on these themes has been welcomed by others writing on the same or related themes.

"I think that the lasting power of Beardsmore's writings, and what will appeal to readers of this volume, are the insightfulness of ideas contained here, and the richly textured use of examples to illustrate them. This volume is thus a welcome addition, ensuring the accessibility of Beardsmore's influential thought..." -- University of Birmingham * British Journal of Aesthetics *
