Tom Huhn’s challenging book provides subtle readings of three philosophers’ aesthetic projects, two of which have been overlooked by many American philosophers. Mimesis is the guiding theme of Huhn’s reading, and it gives him a unique access to certain aesthetic and cognitive theories. While Huhn’s book is relatively short, its themes are vast. I will only discuss what I take to be the heart of Huhn’s project: revealing the relationship between society and aesthetic pleasure.
