Based on John Dewey's lectures on esthetics, delivered as the first William James Lecturer at Harvard in 1932, Art as Experience has grown to be considered internationally as the most distinguished work ever written by an American on the formal structure and characteristic effects of all the arts: architecture, sculpture, painting, music, and literature.

Artists today are smugglers. Recycling both real and fictional images, their proposals are no longer artworks or even art objects, but rather situations to be lived, put to the test and experimented with collectively. Analyzing contemporary art works as authorless 'hyper-artworks', post-colonial critic and theorist Ackbar Abbas argues that narration emerges as a potent aesthetic force and that all forms of documentation are themselves interpretations open to new and multiple readings.

John Dewey's Theory of Art, Experience, and Nature

Thomas Alexander shows that the primary, guiding concern of Dewey’s philosophy is his theory of aesthetic experience. He directly challenges those critics, most notably Stephen Pepper and Benedetto Croce, who argued that this area is the least consistent part of Dewey’s thought. The author demonstrates that the fundamental concept in Dewey’s system is that of “experience” and that paradigmatic treatment of experience is to be found in Dewey’s analysis of aesthetics and art. The confusions resulting from the neglect of this orientation have led to prolonged misunderstandings, eventual neglect, and unwarranted popularity for ideas at odds with the genuine thrust of Dewey’s philosophical concerns. By exposing the underlying aesthetic foundations of Dewey’s philosophy, Alexander aims to rectify many of these errors, generating a fruitful new interest in Dewey.

Josef Albers (1888-1976) was both a pioneer of abstract art and an enormously influential teacher and theorist of art pedagogy. In the work he made at the Bauhaus and--following his emigration from Germany to the U.S.--at Black Mountain College and Yale University, Albers strived for economy of line and clarity of articulation, and he developed his pedagogy along similarly rigorous lines. At Black Mountain College, Albers encountered the educational theories of the great American philosopher John Dewey, who emphasized the importance of context and experience in education, and whose famous statement on aesthetics, "Art as Experience," was published the year after Albers arrived in the U.S. In 1963, Albers published the profoundly influential book "Interaction of Color." Subsequently translated into 12 languages, it continues to be used in classrooms and studios worldwide. "Josef Albers: Art as Experience" looks at the relationship between Albers' pragmatic (and Pragmatist) teaching and his art, presenting previously unseen works by Albers' students from the Bauhaus and elsewhere, along with little-known studies and other art by Albers himself, and reveals the vibrancy and extraordinary impact of Josef Albers' groundbreaking pedagogical methods.

The material from Kant's Critique of Judgment has been expanded to include his writing on aesthetical ideas and the sublime. The selections from Derrida have been updated and considerably expanded for this edition, primarily from The Truth in Painting. One of Derrida's most interesting provocations has also been added, his letter to Peter Eisenman on architecture. In addition, the section on feminist theory now includes a chapter from Irigaray's Speculum of the Other Woman. The anthology includes the most important writings on the theory of art in the Western tradition, including selections from Plato, Aristotle, Hume, Kant, Hegel, and Nietzsche; the most important philosophical writings of the last hundred years on the theory of art, including selections from Collingwood, Langer, Goodman, Heidegger, and Merleau-Ponty; contemporary Continental writings on art and interpretation, including selections from Gadamer, Ricoeur, Derrida, Lyotard, and Foucault; also writings on the psychology of art by Freud and Jung, from the Frankfurt School by Benjamin, Adorno, and Marcuse, in feminist theory, multiculturalism, and postmodernism.

Donald Capps and John Capps'sJames and Dewey on Belief and Experiencejuxtaposes the key writings of two philosophical superstars. As fathers of Pragmatism, America's unique contribution to world philosophy, their work has been enormously influential, and remains essential to any understanding of American intellectual history. In these essays, you'll find William James deeply embroiled in debates between religion and science. Combining philosophical charity with logical clarity, he defended the validity of religious experience against crass forms of scientism. Dewey identified the myriad ways in which supernatural concerns distract religious adherents from pressing social concerns, and sought to reconcile the tensions inherent in science's dual embrace of common sense And The aesthetic.James and Dewey on Belief and Experienceis divided into two sections: The former showcases James, The latter is devoted to Dewey. Two transitional passages in which each reflects on the work of the other bridge these two main segments. Together, The sections offer a unique perspective on the philosophers' complex relationship of influence and interdependence. An editors' introduction provides biographical information about both men, An overview of their respective philosophical orientations, a discussion of the editorial process, and a brief commentary on each of the selections. Comparing what these foremost pragmatists wrote on both themes illumines their common convictions regarding the nature of philosophical inquiry and simultaneously reveals what made each a distinctive thinker.
