The Routledge Companion to Aesthetics is an indispensable
guide and reference source to the major thinkers and topics in
aesthetics. Forty-six new entries by a team of renowned international
contributors provide clear and up-to-date entries under four headings:
historical, from Plato to Derrida; aesthetic theory, from definitions
of art to pictorial representation; issues and challenges, from
criticism to feminist aesthetics; and the individual arts, from
literature to theater.
