The Acquaintance Principle, Aesthetic Autonomy, and Aesthetic Appreciation

British Journal of Aesthetics 52 (2):153-168 (2012)
Abstract
The acquaintance principle (AP) and the view it expresses have recently been tied to a debate surrounding the possibility of aesthetic testimony, which, plainly put, deals with the question whether aesthetic knowledge can be acquired through testimony—typically aesthetic and non-aesthetic descriptions communicated from person to person. In this context a number of suggestions have been put forward opting for a restricted acceptance of AP. This paper is an attempt to restrict AP even more
