Artworld Metaphysics by Robert Kraut

By Robert Kraut

Artworld Metaphysics turns a serious eye upon facets of the artworld, and articulates a number of the difficulties, rules, and norms implicit within the real practices of creative construction, interpretation, review, and commodification. Aesthetic concept is handled as descriptive and explanatory, instead of normative: a idea that pertains to artworld realities as a semantic idea pertains to the fragments of common language it seeks to explain. Robert
Kraut examines emotional expression, right interpretation and objectivity within the context of artworld perform, the relevance of jazz to aesthetic thought, and the targets of ontology (artworld and otherwise). He additionally considers the relation among artwork and language, the confusions of postmodern relativism, and
the relation among artistic/critical perform and aesthetic theory.
