Review: Arguing about Art: Contemporary Philosophical Debates

User Review  - Brittany Sanford - Goodreads

So yes, lets argue about art... Interesting, and as I sat in class my classmates argued about art, it gave me headaches, but I was at least happy that I didn't need to argue. I already knew the truth. Art is simple, complex, and everything. (Food for thought with serious headaches) *good* Read full review
