Overview

Overview

Twenty-five formative essays on the history of aesthetics, originally published over the past 50 years in the Journal of the History of Ideas.
In the past twenty-five years interest in aesthetics and the philosophyof art has accelerated to a remarkable degree. This collection ofessays, from the first half-century of the Journal of the Historyof Ideas, reflects this growth in interest; they will be of valueto philosophers and others in related areas for their intrinsic historical interest, and for the stimulation to further speculation that the history of philosophy has always provided to philosophy itself
. This collection of essays has been organised into four sections: general overview, antiquity, seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, nineteenth and twentieth centuries. The appearance of these seminal essays in one volume will further encourage both the discipline of aesthetics in general, and its history in particular. The contributors are: PETER KIVY, P.O. KRISTELLER, W. TATARKIEWICZ,MILTON C. NAHM, ANTHONY J. CLOSE, H.S. THAYER, HAROLD SKULSKY, ISAIAHSMITHSON, JAMES J. HILL, JEROME STOLNITZ, DABNEY TOWNSEND, KINERETS. JAFFE, CAROLYN WILKER KORSMEYER, JOHN T. OGDEN, JAMES MANNS, CLARENCED. THORPE, MARTHA WOLFENSTEIN, S. MORRIS ENGEL, KATHLEEN HIGGINS,JEFFREY BARNOUW and BEREL LANG.
