Sleinis argues that as art both liberates and provides new points of focus and awareness, the art enterprise depends on a positive freeing from the nonart world, thereby involving freedom in an essential way." "Art and Freedom introduces a novel classificatory system for representation, expression, and formalist theories of art. Sleinis argues that a characteristic defect of contemporary theories of art is their neglect of the issue of value. Probing the issue of progress in art, he also emphasizes the need for art to contribute to positive values."--Jacket." ;
