Introduction to aesthetics : an analytic approach by George Dickie( Book )

13 editions published between 1997 and 2015 in English and held by 569 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Introduction to Aesthetics: An Analytic Approach traces aesthetics from its ancient beginnings through the changes it underwent in the eighteenth, nineteenth, and the first half of the twentieth century. The first half of the book outlines the history of the two organized notions of aesthetics - the theory of beauty and the theory of art - and describes the transformation they went through from ancient Greek times until the 1950s. The responses of the cultural theories in the 1960s to these earlier developments are then discussed in detail. Four addition topics - intentionalistic criticism, symbolism, metaphor, and expression - are also addressed. Finally, five traditional art evaluational theories are presented, and the author constructs an evaluational theory of his own by building on ideas drawn from the work of Monroe Beardsley and Nelson Goodman. Written by one of the foremost philosophers of aesthetics, this engaging text is ideal for undergraduate courses in the philosophy of art and aesthetics, and is also suitable for graduate seminars and courses in these areas. It offers students both a historical introduction to and the latest work on theories of art, theories of the experience of art, and theories of art evaluation
The century of taste : the philosophical odyssey of taste in the eighteenth century by George Dickie( Book )

21 editions published between 1995 and 1998 in English and Undetermined and held by 493 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

At the beginning of the eighteenth century, the focus of philosophy shifted from objective notions of beauty to the subjective concept of taste. In this book, George Dickie traces the development and decline of this mode of thought, critically evaluating the theoretical aims of five key figures in the theory of taste. Dickie looks at the work of Francis Hutcheson, whose inquiries into the origins of pleasure and displeasure led to the first systematic theory of taste. He offers critical readings of the associationist philosophies of Alexander Gerard and Archibald Allison - which he regards as "blind alleys" into which the theory of taste was diverted. He provides a critical look at Kant, placing his writings in the context of other theories of taste, and within the teleological scheme of his Third Critique. Finally, Dickie concludes with an extended study of Hume's short pamphlet, "Of the Standard of Taste," the epitome of philosophically sophisticated explorations of taste
