Product description

Review

After sleepwalking for several decades under the exclusive trance of fine art, philosophers are once again recognizing that aesthetics denotes a far wider and more significant field. In the real world of everyday living, aesthetics helps determine the clothes we wear and the food we eat, but also the company, the environments, and the beliefs we keep, and even the officials we elect. The Aesthetics of Everyday Life should be welcomed as a useful and wide-ranging collection that explores this fascinating domain. Richard Shusterman, author of Pragmatist AestheticsAndrew Light and Jonathan M. Smith have done a genuine service in assembling the essays in The Aesthetics of Everyday Life.
