    1. Stephen Davies is a Distinguished Professor of philosophy at the University of Auckland, New Zealand.

    2. A very good introduction to many key issues in the philosophy of the arts. As with all introductions, it did not go into certain interesting topics (such as the problematic way in which pornography blends fact and fiction which brought to mind for me the work of Andrea Dworkin) in as much depth as I would have preferred, but it is a solid introduction to the topic.

    3. Informative, well-written, and interesting. Davies calls on countless historical aesthetics texts to portray all sides of debates in aesthetic theory. I am really enjoying this, and it has helped me a lot in my Art Theory course.
