Aesthetics on the Edge: Where Philosophy Meets the Human Sciences

Oxford University Press (2018)

Dominic McIver Lopes
University of British Columbia
This book proposes a new methodology for aesthetics, where problems in philosophy are addressed by examining how aesthetic phenomena are understood in the human sciences. Lopes then puts the methodology to work, illuminating the perceptual and social-pragmatic capacities involved in responding to works of visual art, literature, and music.
