This title brings together fresh debates on eleven of the most controversial issues in aesthetics and the philosophy of art.

Each question is treated by a pair of opposing essays written by eminent scholars, and especially commissioned for the volume. Lively debate format sharply defines the issues, and paves the way for further discussion. This title will serve as an accessible introduction to the major topics in aesthetics, while also capturing the imagination of professional philosophers.
