"Stunning insights into Renaissance aesthetic theory... a rigorous and critical assessment of key moments in the Western aesthetic tradition, speaks beyond the audience of philosophers and literary critics..." --Renaissance Quarterly

"Stone challenges the simple opposition of philosophy and art... in a style that has the directness of sculpture." --John Llewelyn

In an elegant and provocative text enhanced by photographs, John Sallis offers an important new theory of philosophy and art. He takes up the various guises and settings in which stone appears and what philosophers have said about the beauty of stone.
