Essays on Art and PhilosophyBook - 2008
"Logically speaking, criticism and evaluation of art remain distinct from philosophy of art proper, so most of the resulting voluminous chat about art is confused level-jumping, specific comments straining for an impossible generality-impossible because nothing general can be true enough to stand, and nothing true can be general enough to satisfy the craving. In the resulting vacuum of thought, art itself tries to take over the job of saying what it is about. Since good artists are often bad philosophers, the results are frequently excruciating."
