Book Condition: A well-cared-for item that has seen limited use but remains in great condition. Wollheim focuses entirely on the mind, and the mind games that ensue do little to enlighten one's understanding of art and its objects, what and why they do what they, and why they're important.

Book Condition: A well-cared-for item that has seen limited use but remains in great condition. The item is complete, unmarked, and undamaged, but may show some limited signs of wear. Item works perfectly. This book was used in a course I had with Wollheim as a lecturer; both could not have been more boring and banal. The book was widely resold as many students didn't bother to read it, or began to read it and gave up.

Richard Wollheim's classic reflection on art considers central questions regarding expression, representation, style, the significance of the artist's intention and the essentially historical nature of art.

Richard Arthur Wollheim (5 May 1923 – 4 November 2003) was a British philosopher noted for original work on mind and emotions, especially as related to the visual arts, specifically, painting. Wollheim served as the president of the British Society of Aesthetics from 1992 onwards until his death in 2003.

Richard Wollheim's classic reflection on art and its objects was written in the belief. What defines a work of art and determines the way in which we respond to it? This classic reflection was written with the belief that the nature of art has to be understood simultaneously from the artist's as well as the spectator's viewpoint.

As it has been pointed out, the book features a rigorous analysis of the concept "art" and develops into a mature and comprehensive overview of the meaning of the word. Wollheim posits forth no normative statements, but relies exclusively on positive facts. It is fascinating how humble, and yet how powerful the final argument is. You will enjoy it, if you are somewhat educated on the question and do not mind analytic traditions.

I don't know of Wollheim's claim to fame, other than as a graduate student he helped A. J. Ayer in his writings. Be that as it may, this book (and everything Wollheim has written) is so droll and irrelevant to the philosophy of art. I suspect he is trying so hard to be anglo-analytic in his approach that he forgot that art touches the heart as well as the mind. Wollheim focuses entirely on the mind, and the mind games that ensue do little to enlighten one's understanding of art and its objects, what and why they do what they, and why they're important. This book was used in a course I had with Wollheim as a lecturer; both could not have been more boring and banal. The book was widely resold as many students didn't bother to read it, or began to read it and gave up. The consensus was nearly unanimous in irrelevance to the artist especially, and no less irrelevant to the philosophy students.
