Artworks potentially convey two kinds of knowledge: knowledge of art itself as well as general empirical knowledge, especially knowledge of human psychology. This book collects ten essays written by leading philosophers who distill and build upon recent work at the intersection of aesthetics and epistemology. The volume also explores the challenges that art poses for theories of knowledge as well as the challenges that artistic knowledge poses to traditional views about art.

" [...] a variety of articles which reaffirm the cognitive character of art from diverse perspectives, among which they emphasize clearly the notion of art as a powerful tool in the realm of modal knowledge."
