Artworld Metaphysics turns a critical eye upon aspects of the artworld, and articulates some of the problems, principles, and norms implicit in the actual practices of artistic creation, interpretation, evaluation, and commodification. Aesthetic theory is treated as descriptive and explanatory, rather than normative: a theory that relates to artworld realities as a semantic theory relates to the fragments of natural language it seeks to describe. Robert Kraut examines emotional expression, correct interpretation and objectivity in the context of artworld practice, the relevance of jazz to aesthetic theory, and the goals of ontology (artworld and otherwise). He also considers the relation between art and language, the confusions of postmodern relativism, and the relation between artistic/critical practice and aesthetic theory.

MEDIA REVIEWS
[I]t is important to stress that I found his book to be extremely rewarding in a number of respects. As already mentioned above, Kraut manages to cover an impressively wide range of topics and for the most part does so in a clear, inventive, and insightful manner. * Jon Robson, Mind *
The discussions are smart and sharp, often doing much to clear the ground around these issues... Its pace is brisk, but it remains lucid at speed. * Guy Rohrbaugh, Journal of Aesthetics and Art Criticism *
If you love to explore how you might go about answering philosophical questions, this book is for you...There is much that I admired in this book. * Robert Stecker, Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews *
