Art and Truth after Plato by Tom Rockmore

By Tom Rockmore

Despite its foundational position within the historical past of philosophy, Plato’s well-known argument that artwork doesn't have entry to fact or wisdom is now infrequently tested, partly simply because contemporary philosophers have assumed that Plato’s problem used to be resolved some time past. In Art and fact after Plato, Tom Rockmore argues that Plato has in reality by no means been satisfactorily answered—and to illustrate that, he bargains a finished account of Plato’s effect via approximately the total background of Western aesthetics.

 

Rockmore deals a cogent studying of the post-Platonic aesthetic culture as a chain of responses to Plato’s place, reading a beautiful range of thinkers and ideas. He visits Aristotle’s Poetics, the medieval Christians, Kant’s Critique of Judgment, Hegel’s phenomenology, Marxism, social realism, Heidegger, and plenty of different works and thinkers, finishing with a robust synthesis that lands on 4 relevant aesthetic arguments that philosophers have debated. greater than an insignificant historical past of aesthetics, Art and fact after Plato offers a clean examine an historical query, bringing it into modern relief.
