The book introduces in a non-technical way the complex question of the nature of art and its place in human culture. The author explains how the most familiar ideas about art can provide entrances to philosophical aesthetics, demonstrating that philosophical reflection can transform unexamined cliches into broad issues in philosophy. Drawing from examples in music, drama, literature, painting, sculpture, architecture, cinema, and photography, the author is able to show that philosophizing about art is not an arid exercise but a vital step in coming to a deeper understanding of the significance of art in human experience.
