My main interest is the philosophy (or theory) of art (visual art, literature and music). I am neither 'analytic' nor 'continental' in approach because I believe both schools have serious deficiencies where the theory of art is concerned. One of my special interests at present is the neglected but crucial question of the relationship between art and (the passing of) time. I have written articles and delivered papers on this topic and my book 'Art and Time' appeared in February 2013.
