What Art Is Like, In Constant Reference to the Alice Books

Front Cover
Harvard University Press, Oct 30, 2012 - Philosophy - 132 pages
This comic, serious inquiry into the nature of art takes its technical vocabulary from Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass. It is ridiculous to think of poems, paintings, or films as distinct from other things in the world, including people. Talking about art should be contiguous with talking about other relevant matters.
