Description

The Question of what ‘aesthetic education’ is, or might be, is often a source of incomprehension. This book opens up discussion of a complex, difficult, but highly important topic, and offers an introductory survey of the whole area. In examining the relationship of the concept of the aesthetic to that of art, it challenges the persistent linking by many educationists of ‘aesthetic’ with ‘creative’ and the consequent neglect of critical reflection and appreciation.

Reviews

‘…the questions are well wrought, skilfully grouped….For those in academe searching for issues with which to forge a seminar in aesthetic education, Chapter One alone is worth the price of the book.’ Journal of Aesthetic Education
