The Way beyond 'Art' [Book Review]

Review of Metaphysics 13 (2):356-356 (1959)

In 1947 Professor Dorner published The Way beyond 'Art'--The Work of Herbert Bayer. That book was one-half a series of startling generalizations dealing with the development of the visual arts, mind and nature, and one-half a series of perceptive and interesting insights into the work of the modern artist-designer, Herbert Bayer. In this posthumous, revised edition, the half dealing specifically with Bayer is omitted. What remains is Dorner's unusual history of art, which traces the dissolution of three-dimensional reality and the rise of the "Modern Realism," which Dorner celebrates as "positively illustrating the physicist's new vision of the world."--D. W. S.
