Just as it is part of being a good chess player to know the openings, it is part of being a good philosopher to know standard views and arguments, so that they can pick them up and run with them. There is a lot of truth in this analogy, but it sells the history of philosophy short as well. Chess is pursued within a fixed and determinate set of rules. These cannot be changed

The 13 essays in this collection are marked by a diversity of philosophical styles and perspectives on art. While some authors focus on specific forms of art, others are more concerned with the interpretation given to art by past and contemporary philosophers and artists. In some essays nothing less than the outline of a systematic account of the arts is ventured, even as other authors raised the question of the very possibility of such interpretations or argue for the conditions that must be met by an adequate account or evaluation of the arts. Yet, in one way or another, all the essays address the question of specifying the distinctiveness of artworks or art itself.
