Nietzsche as philosopher by Arthur Coleman Danto ( Book )

Few philosophers are as widely read or as widely misunderstood as Friedrich Nietzsche.... many regarded Nietzsche as a brilliant but somewhat erratic thinker. [The author], however, presented a radically different picture, arguing that Nietzsche offered a systematic and coherent philosophy that anticipated many of the questions that define contemporary philosophy. [His] clear and insightful commentaries helped canonize Nietzsche as a philosopher and continue to illuminate subtleties in Nietzsche's work as well as his immense contributions to the philosophies of science, language, and logic. -Back cover.
After the end of art : contemporary art and the pale of history by Arthur Coleman Danto ( Book )
13 editions published between 1995 and 2010 in 3 languages and held by 1,307 libraries worldwide
Over a decade ago, Arthur Danto announced that art ended in the sixties. Ever since this declaration, he has been at the forefront of a radical critique of the nature of art in our time. After the End of Art presents Danto's first full-scale reformulation of his original insight, showing how, with the eclipse of abstract expressionism, art has deviated irrevocably from the narrative course that Vassari helped define for it in the Renaissance. Moreover, he leads the way to a new type of criticism that can help us understand art in a posthistorical age - where, for example, an artist can produce a work in the style of Rembrandt to create a visual pun, and where traditional theories cannot explain the difference between Andy Warhol's Brillo Box and the product found in the grocery store. Here we are engaged in a series of insightful and entertaining conversations on the most relevant aesthetic and philosophical issues of art, conducted by an especially acute observer of the art scene today. Originally delivered as the prestigious Mellon Lectures on the Fine Arts, these writings cover art history, pop art, "people's art," the future role of museums, and the critical contributions of Clement Greenberg - who helped make sense of modernism for viewers over two generations ago through an aesthetics-based criticism.

"In a work of great wisdom and insight, art critic and philosopher Arthur Danto delivers a compact, masterful tour of Andy Warhol's personal, artistic, and philosophical transformations. Danto traces the evolution of the pop artist, including his early reception, relationships with artists such as Jasper Johns and Robert Rauschenberg, and the Factory phenomenon. He offers close readings of individual Warhol works, including their social context and philosophical dimensions, key differences with predecessors such as Marcel Duchamp, and parallels with successors like Jeff Koons. Danto brings to bear encyclopedic knowledge of Warhol's time and shows us Warhol as an endlessly multidimensional figure - artist, political activist, filmmaker, writer, philosopher who retains permanent residence in our national imagination. Danto suggests that "what makes him an American icon is that his subject matter is always something that the ordinary American understands: everything, or nearly everything he made art out of came straight out of the daily lives of very ordinary Americans ... The tastes and values of ordinary persons all at once were inseparable from advanced art."--Jacket.

Beyond the brillo box : the visual arts in post-historical perspective by Arthur Coleman Danto ( Book )
18 editions published between 1992 and 2008 in English and French and held by 932 libraries worldwide
A ground-breaking contribution to contemporary thinking about aesthetics, Arthur C. Danto's new collection of interconnected essays grapples with the most challenging issues in art today, among them the problems of contemporary pluralism and the dilemmas of censorship and state support for artists. Andy Warhol's Brillo Box of 1964 constituted a radical attack on traditional definitions of the artwork and, in Danto's view, brought the history of Western art to a close. Beyond the Brillo Box considers the aftermath and the consequences of Warhol's work on three levels. Danto first discusses what he calls the master narrative of Western art, showing how even the most revolutionary pre-Pop movements were nourished by a common conception of art which lay securely within the Western tradition, and contrasting this tradition to parallel narratives in the East and in Africa. He then takes up the current, post-historical period, which began with Warhol and the collision of "high" and "low" art, and discusses how the pluralism it engendered has changed the way art is made, perceived, and exhibited. Finally, Danto addresses the philosophical idea of the master narrative from Plato to Wittgenstein and beyond by exploring the ways art has a history, the different kinds of history it has in different cultures, and the degree to which narratives are real and not simply intellectual constructs. Arthur C. Danto's criticism, which has been published principally in The Nation, since 1984, has made him one of our leading art critics. Here he discusses the philosophical concerns that underlie his provocative and illuminating engagements with the art of our time. Urgently committed yet always witty and deeply humane, Danto is the most enlightening--and exciting--thinker about the problems of aesthetics today. Beyond the Brillo Box is a work of immediate--and more than immediate--importance.
