    Book details


Frank Sibley (1923-1996) was one of the most important philosophers of aesthetics of the last fifty years, whose published papers are required reading for serious students of the subject. Approach to Aesthetics will be welcomed both for bringing together these well known papers, and for its inclusion of new, previously unpublished papers. This timeless body of work will continue to demand and reward the attention of scholars and students.

"A valuable and stimulating collection that shows Sibley at his fearless best in asking and making distinctions that raise doubts about some of our most entrenched beliefs and assumptions concerning art and aesthetic."--The Review of Metaphysics Frank Sibley (1923-1996) was the first Professor of Philosophy to be appointed at Lancaster University, a position he occupied until his retirement.

Review Text

  • By Dean on July 8, 2013

    Maybe I am just the intellectual equivalent of Larry the Cable Guy, but I seriously lack any interest in grown adults slinging their proverbial penises around over irrelevant topics such as "what is pretty" and who gets to decide what pretty is or isn't. Of the aesthetic "experts" that we studied, this guy was the worst: the book is just one continuous spewing of contradictions, self-aggrandizing and borrowed theories. I got my first "C" in 5 years at the university as I was forced to recite the flatulence contained within to the old fart instructor that thought it all a work of genius. I am starting to think that philosophy is the cause of all man's problems and seriously regretting choosing it as my minor. Happy reading!
