"Transfigurements" develops a framework for thinking about art through innovative readings of some of the most important philosophical writing on the subject by Kant, Hegel, and Heidegger. Sallis exposes new layers in their texts and theories while also marking their limits. By doing so, his aim is to show that philosophy needs to attend to art directly. Consequently, Sallis also addresses a wide range of works of art, including paintings by Raphael, Monet, and Klee; Shakespeare's comedies; and the music of Beethoven, Schubert, Mahler, and Tan Dun. Through these interpretations, he puts forth a compelling new elaboration of the philosophy of art.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Deft and patient, Sallis presents essentially a hermeneutical history of the philosophy of art. This is an irreplaceable contribution to the philosophy of art and to philosophy itself because it shows the transition to a philosophy beyond metaphysics." (Choice) "The character of Sallis's scholarship in this volume is matched throughout by clarity of thought.... A lasting contribution to the philosophy of art." (Notre Dame Philosophical Review)"
