Reflections on Art [Book Review]

Review of Metaphysics 12 (4):665-665 (1959)

All the authors represented in this "source book to serve independent study on the part of scholars and fairly advanced students in philosophy of art" share Miss Langer's predilection for two basic concepts: "expressiveness" and "semblance," which "defines the work of art as a wholly created appearance, the Art Symbol." Thus while it would not serve as a survey text, nevertheless presents many provocative essays which have not been available in English or in other easily obtainable collections.--D. W. S.
