The Aesthetic Understanding

roger-scruton-the-aesthetic-understandingSt. Augustine's Press (1983, new ed. 1997)

Brings together essays on the philosophy of art in which a philosophical theory of aesthetic judgment is tested and developed through its application to particular examples.

Each essay approaches, from its own field of study, what Roger Scruton argues to be the central problems of aesthetics – what is aesthetic experience, and what is its importance for human conduct?
