The Oxford Handbooks series is a major new initiative in academic publishing. Each volume offers an authoritative and up-to-date survey of original research in a particular subject area. Specially commissioned essays from leading figures in the discipline give critical examinations of the progress and direction of debates. Oxford Handbooks provide scholars and graduate students with compelling new perspectives upon a wide range of subjects in the humanities and social sciences. The Oxford Handbook of Aesthetics brings the authority, liveliness, and multi-disciplinary scope of the Handbook series to the area where philosophy meets the arts. Jerrold Levinson has assembled a hugely impressive range of talent to contribute 48 brand-new essays, making this the most comprehensive guide available to the theory, application, history, and future of the field. This Handbook will be invaluable to academics and students across philosophy and all branches of the arts, both as the reference work of choice and as a stimulus to new research and creativity.

Reviews for The Oxford Handbook of Aesthetics

`The Handbook is a timely response to a growing interest in covers a good deal of ground, provides much interesting information and abounds in interesting quotations.' Philosophy Now `Levinson has achieved his intention to provide a collection from which both the professional philosopher and the enthusiastic non-professional can derive instruction and pleasure. . . . he has brought together many of the key practitioners in the field of philosophical aesthetics and this is reflected in the depth of subjects and the lucid quality of the writing.' British Journal of Aesthetics
