Description

Hume's Aesthetic Theory examines the neglected area of the development of aesthetics in empiricist thinking, exploring the link between the empiricist background of aesthetics in the eighteenth century and the work of David Hume.

This is a major contribution to our understanding of Hume's general philosophy and provides fresh insights into the history of aesthetics.
