  1. For the Love of Art: Artistic Values and Appreciative Virtue.Matthew Kieran - 2012 - Royal Institute of Philosophy Supplement 71:13-31.

The distinction makes possible a fuller account of why art matters to us—it matters not only insofar as it is aesthetically good, but also in its capacity as an achievement that is creditable to an (...)
