What Art Does: Using Philosophy of Technology to Talk about Art

Lanham: Rowman & Littlefield Publishers (2023)
  Copy   BIBTEX


The question of what and how artworks mean things is conventionally satisfied by appealing to literature from either philosophy of art or philosophy of language. This book offers an alternative by positioning art as a type of meaning-making tool whose function can only be understood through the application of the philosophy of technology.
