Mothersill, Mary. Beauty Restored
1984, Clarendon Press.
Added by: Chris Blake-Turner, Contributed by: Christy Mag Uidhir
Abstract: In this book the author assesses the main trends of recent aesthetics and makes two important philosophical claims: one, that there are genuine (that is, true and demonstrable) judgments of taste, and two, that there are no principles or laws of taste. In a penetrating and insightful defense of these theses, Mothersill addresses the question of their compatibility and develops the contrast between aesthetic and ethical reasoning and between beauty and the sublime.
