In recent years there has been a growing interest in problems of theory and method in the field of art history. Semiology, phenomenology, feminism, analytical philosophy and Marxism have all contributed to a lively debate among art historians and have helped to stimulate new research. This volume draws together some of the authors who have been most prominent and influential in recent methodological debates and enables them to develop their views. The contributions include Norman Bryson on semiology and the limits of meaning; Arthur C. Danto on description and pictorial perception; Rosalind Krauss on language; Linda Nochlin on gender and power; Michael Podro on depiction; David Summers on image and metaphor; Richard Wollheim on the role of spectator. Each of these major contributions is subjected to critical scrutiny by other well-known figures in the field. A unique volume which will establish itself as a key reference point for the discussion of art historical method.
