Feminist Aesthetics and Philosophy of Art: The Power of Critical Visions and Creative Engagement

Beschreibung

While much feminist philosophy is enjoying third- and fourth-wave developments and can build on its scholarly roots forged in the 1960s and 1970s, feminist contributions have taken what seems an exceptionally long time to break into the stubborn areas of aesthetics and philosophy of art. Some feminist scholars might reasonably consider aesthetics to be a back-burner issue: if we take feminism mainly to be a movement seeking equality and strategies to address social, economic, and political inequities, views on art practices or values have tended to seem less important than work in the sister area of feminist social and political theory.The truth is, however, that areas of aesthetic value, political value, ethical valueeven scientific value and religious valueintersect in meaningful and complex ways, both in practices of oppression and liberatory strategies. The authors in this volume explore the connections between these value spheres that are too often separated. Feminist Aesthetics and Philosophy of Art: The Power of Critical Visions and Creative Engagement addresses this dearth in the field, and seeks to build on those prior foundational perspectives in feminist aesthetics/philosophy of art. This volume is particularly timely, as it gathers work from scholars who have been able to both build on and offer internal feminist critiques of the previous groundwork.
