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 is the neglected but crucial question of the relationship between art and (the passing of) time. I have discussed this topic in various articles and conference papers (some available on my website) and in my two books: 'Art and the Human Adventure: André Malraux's Theory of Art' (2009) and 'Art and Time' (2013).
