Verlag: University Of Chicago Press
This Book is in Good Condition. Clean Copy With Light Amount of Wear. 100% Guaranteed. Summary: "Known for his habit of providing a grand sweep of the history and philosophically pertinent literature of (often) poorly grasped, contentious questions-the meaning of Kant's 'Copernican revolution,' Hegel's 'circular epistemology,' the actual relationship between Kant and German Idealism, among his familiar topics-Tom Rockmore now advances a most instructive overview of Plato's classic charge against the cognitive competence of the fine arts. Quite literally, Rockmore canvasses the entire philosophical tradition in fashioning a fresh, indeed a legible compendium of the essential disputes a responsible reader will want to have in hand to assess the question's present state of play or to enter the lists effectively.".

Inhaltsangabe: Despite its foundational role in the history of philosophy, Plato?s famous argument that art does not have access to truth or knowledge is now rarely examined, in part because recent philosophers have assumed that Plato?s challenge was resolved long ago. In Art and Truth after Plato, Tom Rockmore argues that Plato has in fact never been satisfactorily answered?and to demonstrate that, he offers a comprehensive account of Plato?s influence through nearly the whole history of Western aesthetics. Rockmore offers a cogent reading of the post-Platonic aesthetic tradition as a series of responses to Plato?s position, examining a stunning diversity of thinkers and ideas. He visits Aristotle?s Poetics, the medieval Christians, Kant?s Critique of Judgment, Hegel?s phenomenology, Marxism, social realism, Heidegger, and many other works and thinkers, ending with a powerful synthesis that lands on four central aesthetic arguments that philosophers have debated. More than a mere history of aesthetics, Art and Truth after Plato presents a fresh look at an ancient question, bringing it into contemporary relief.

He is the author of many books, most recently Before and After 9/11: A Philosophical Examination of Globalization, Terror, and History and Kant and Phenomenology, the latter published by the University of Chicago Press.
