On the true sense of art

A critical companion to the transfigurements of John Sallis

Jason M. Wirth, Michael Schwartz, David Jones

Research output: Book/ReportBook

Abstract

On the True Sense of Art collects essays by philosophers responding to John Sallis's Transfigurements: On the True Sense of Art as well as his other works on the philosophy of art, including Force of Imagination and Logic of Imagination. Each of the chapters, by some of the leading thinkers in Continental philosophy, engages Sallis's work on both ancient and new senses of aesthetics-a transfiguration of aesthetics-as a beginning that is always beginning again. With a responsive essay by Sallis himself, On the True Sense of Art forms a critical introduction to the thought of this generation's most important aesthetician.
