But Hofstadter's book has no contemporary theory at all after Heidegger (and it inexplicably lacks some important selections from Kant). Ross' anthology by contrast includes most of the really critical material from Plato, Aristotle, Kant, Hegel, Nietzsche and Heidegger (of which most other aesthetics anthologies, surprisingly do not), plus it.

Adorno’s tract is densely written, yet philosophically expansive, aesthetics, at once negative and positive. Aesthetics - Aesthetics - The work of art: As the above discussion illustrates, it is impossible to advance far into the theory of aesthetic experience without encountering the specific problems posed by the experience of art.

This very welcome book opens with the reminder that Hegel has been credited with being both the father of art history and the prophet of art's end.

The first claim has ensured Hegel's place in art history as a discipline; the second controversial claim has guaranteed the longevity of Hegel's philosophy of art within the field of aesthetics. In other words, a work of art is a copy of a copy of a Form.
