A coat of many colors. Essentialism versus Constructivism in Recent Definitions of Art

Descriere

"What is art? Is it something in itself or a social convention? Why is it historically so diverse and often so weird? Is it really important for individuals and communities? More importantly, why does art even exist? From the art historian's (and the educator's) point of view, the book offers a few, brief, provisional, but hopefully exciting answers to such questions, which go beyond the boundaries of the theoretical views that currently dominate academia. To formulate them, I took a brief, but exhilirating journey through art theory, sociology, anthropology, evolutionary psychology, epistemology, complex systems. The journey is ongoing; the book is a way of sharing the exciting things I've discovered so far. "
