I can't really see people reading this other than undergraduates becuase they've been told to. But maybe I'm wrong. From what I know of the subject area, I'd gamble that it's fairly comprehensive and includes the really important papers, which is what you'd expect from an anthology of this sort. Note that this is analytic philosophy and thus quite difficult from the point of view of the uninitiated. One would probably be better off with something else is they're after a very general guide to aesthetics.

Lamarque was one of my tutors at university. He's very well established name in analytic aesthetics and has a number of his own 'lines' in this area, as he used to say. I also remember him being intrigued by the fishing hat I once wore to a tutuorial. ( )

Gods. Okay. I try not to use any of the Seven Dirty Words You Must Not Say Under Any Circumstances in my review -- after all, there could be CHILDREN READING THIS -- but seriously. Fuck aesthetics. Having to read this was probably the most disillusioning assignment I had in college. It's astonishing that people write so much about something so meaningless and empty.

It gets a star and a half because I guess it's an okay collection. But seriously, ugh. ( )
