John Dewey S Theory Of Art Experience And Nature

Thomas Alexander shows that the primary, guiding concern of Dewey’s philosophy is his theory of aesthetic experience. He directly challenges those critics, most notably Stephen Pepper and Benedetto Croce, who argued that this area is the least consistent part of Dewey’s thought. The author demonstrates that the fundamental concept in Dewey’s system is that of “experience” and that paradigmatic treatment of experience is to be found in Dewey’s analysis of aesthetics and art. The confusions resulting from the neglect of this orientation have led to prolonged misunderstandings, eventual neglect, and unwarranted popularity for ideas at odds with the genuine thrust of Dewey’s philosophical concerns. By exposing the underlying aesthetic foundations of Dewey’s philosophy, Alexander aims to rectify many of these errors, generating a fruitful new interest in Dewey.

Breasts Bodies Canvas

"Breasts, Bodies, Canvas reinterprets Central Desert art. These paintings are not just aesthetically pleasing, they evoke crucial bodily sensations and sensibilities. Anthropologist Jennifer Loureide Biddle focuses on what this art 'does' rather than what it 'means'. Breaking a generation of scholarship that has identified these works as traditional symbolic representations of country, Biddle opens up a new path for understanding these works as material forces of culture, sentiment and politics. The encounter with Aboriginal art is understood to be a sensuous engagement with cultural difference as a lived reality." "This book examines the rise of female Aboriginal artists, and the tactile and sensory activities involved in painting. Biddle argues that the recent success of women painters points to a certain 'feminisation' of country, Ancestor and Dreaming that makes this art literally enlivened and enlivening."--BOOK JACKET.
