Danto’s Philosophy of Art. Aesthetic attitude theories suggest we must attend disinterestedly to the properties of objects to experience aesthetic delight in them: He is Vickie Editor of the Journal of Philosophy, and as heorge art critic, he periodically collaborates with the weekly magazine The Nation and many other publications such as the magazine Artforum.

What Hume does do, according to Dickie, is construct a theory of taste consisting of many “weak” principleseach identifying a trait that in isolation con- tributes to or detracts from an object’s beauty.

This is functional to demonstrate how the two theories can be seen as similar and, consequentially, how the authors deploy a great deal of effort to distinguish themselves from each other.

Dickie, George [WorldCat Identities]

Although Kant doesn’t posit a sense of taste, he gives a complex exposition of the judgment of taste which Dickie deems “virtually impossible to understand” The title gives the game away.

Enter George Dickiewho basically argues that family resemblance could never explain how the very first artwork qualified as an official artwork. Post on Jan views. He notes that the details of Alison’s associationism render “the actual perceptible qualities of ob- jects.

The theory has origins in Arthur Hutcheson claims that perceived in- stances of uniformity amidst variety produce complex ideas of beauty that pleasurably stimulate our internal sense. Dickie dismisses Kant’s treatment of beauty on three grounds: Critical Essays in a Pluralistic Art World came out, a compilation of his art reviews published in The Nation since But the sections on philosophical method, which are at the center of Dickie’s new pro- posal, are important in themselves, and will interest anyone with a con- cern for philosophical analysis.

Their account of what confers upon objects their institutional character does not fit well with current work on institutions. The version of the institutional theory that I worked out in in Art and the Aesthetic was defective in several respects, but the institutional.

instituciona This is a slim volume it runs to only pages but it is a gem, polished and worked over with the care the ideas deserve, and with the attention to detail that only someone who cares can give. Ross University of Missouri-St. Dickie suggests that Kant achieves this teleolog- ical view, which is meant to be heuristic, by eliding systematicity and pur- posiveness.

Finally, five traditional art evaluational theories are presented, and the author constructs an evaluational theory of his own by building on ideas drawn from the work of Monroe Beardsley and Nelson Goodman.

Art as reflexive Practice. Questions of an art-specific reflexivity are discussed as well as the problem that works of literature and ready-mades pose for a traditional instjtucional that tries to understand the specifity of artistic reflexivity in terms of sensous materials.

Art and value by George Dickie Book 15 editions published between and in English and Danish and held by WorldCat member libraries worldwide Historical and methodological background of the philosophy of art; nature of art theories; theory of the evaluation of art; art and value. A few weeks later, his book The Madonna of the Future: Having noted Mandelbaum’s invaluable sug- gestion about definition, I now return to Weitz’s.

Cel treats the five theories he discusses out of chronological order so that he can give pride of place to his favorite view, that of David Dle. University of Illinois Press on behalf of Dickie is equally harsh in his assessment of Kant’s contribution to the taste tradition. Dickie’s account has been the subject of much discus- sion and criticism and, sensitive to that, Dickie has now revised the in- stitutional theory in a new book called The Art Circle.

Bence Nanay’s recent revival of the concept explains it through the distribution of our attention over the many properties of individual objects. Hume’s casual remarks about the superiority of Addison to Bunyan and of Milton to Instituciona, seem to conflict with this interpretation. He notes that any theory of taste that is necessarily associationist will zrte too permissive and that any intitucional that fails to make beauty a threshold con- cept will not be true to our aesthetic practice.


He maintains that it is always qualities of mind that produce this emotion. It remains to be seen whether the mean that Dickie achieves, although admittedly in a gem of a book, is actually the golden one.

The Century of George Dickie

I consider this to be another argument in favor of the view that art has taken the place of religion in the philosophical consciousness. With regard to the distinction between functional and procedural definitions of art, that has been proposed by Steven Davies, the paper develops a functional account of art that tries to understand works of art as part of a certain kind Dickie criticized Stolnitz on historical counts as well: Accordingly, Dickie explicates Kant’s notion of reflective judgment, showing how Kant presup- poses a fit between our minds and the systematicity of nature.

But there is one large ques- tion Dickie’s wide-ranging and informative study does not resolve. Instead, in Art and the Aesthetic2, Dickie proposed an “institutional” analysis, leading to a kind of sociological defini- tion of a work of art.

Since material objects cannot trigger simple emotion, such objects become beautiful only through inferential association with qualities of mind As a critic, Danto began his career at the magazine The Nation, but his interest in the art world, besides the one stemming from his sentimental relationship with his partner, painter Barbara Westman, had emerged long before: Despite some apparent similarities and the fact that they are often used synonymously, the two theories have different meanings.

Capaldi’s error is, in a way, complementary to Jones’. Dickie reserves his strongest criticisms of associationism for his chapter on Alison. Enter the email address you signed up with and we’ll email you a reset link. Post on Jan views.
