Abstract:

"In this book the implications of the idea for a Thomistic approach to the problematic of aesthetic perception are examined. Beginning with Thomas' famous definition of beautiful things as 'those things which when seen give pleasure', the author highlights the limitations present in Umberto Eco's treatment of Thomas' embryonic aesthetic theory and shows how insights gleaned from Thomas' virtue ethics can contribute to a theory of aesthetic perception which has relevance for both philosophy and theology."--Jacket.
