"Those who think they know George Dickie's views should be sure to read this book. They are in for some interesting surprises. Of course, those unfamiliar with Dickie's views will also learn a lot." --Anita Silvers, San Francisco State University In this book George Dickie presents a theory about how to judge a work of art--as opposed to a theory that explains why a particular work is defined as art. Focusing mainly on the writings of Monroe Beardsley and critically examining the views of seven other philosophers and art critics--Paul Ziff, Frank Sibley, Nelson Goodman, Nicholas Wolterstorff, David Hume, Bruce Vermazen, and J. O. Urmson--Dickie synthesizes their insights to discover what can be derived from their theories. On this basis, he attempts to work out a theory of art evaluation--the first such book on this topic by a contemporary philosopher. Initially, the author outlines all possible theories of art evaluation, assuming that traditional evaluative notions are used. He identifies seven theory-types that fall under four general headings: imitation value theory, objective intrinsic value theories, subjective intrinsic value theory, and instrumental value theories. Dickie then discusses the historical development of the theory of art evaluation, examining the ways in which eighteenth- and nineteenth-century philosophers treated representation and other cognitive dimensions of art as artistic values. His thorough analysis of the work of other contemporary theorists argues for a theory of art evaluation derived from various strands of thought.

Hello, everyone! My name is William O. Thompson, Jr. I was born the sixth child of eleven. I have three wonderful brothers and seven beautiful sisters. I was born in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, on March 3, 1967. I moved to Columbia, South Carolina, in 2003, and I been here ever since. I am the proud father of eight children; I have five beautiful daughters and three very handsome sons. I have two failed marriages, and I have seen a lot of pain in my years, so through all my pain, I gave birth to this book. It is dedicated to the woman I have been looking for all my life. I am in love with you, but I don’t know who you are, but I do know we share the same heart. If you happen to find me through this book, then you will find us, and some of the poems are for all those who are going through a rough time in their life and relationships—those who really want to be loved and give their love to that special someone. But people like us must beware that we are light, and those who lurk in the shadows of darkness seek to destroy our hearts and everything that’s good. I have been in two bad relationships and have seen the darkest side of life. That was so devastating to me, but I never let it destroy the man I am. Instead, I just put words to my pain (and yours) and all the things I see in this world. So I am a voice, expressing for you and me. My heart is still full of love, and I am waiting patiently for the one I can give my all to. So I hope this book of love letters to you finds you, and you find us.
