Summary
"The book introduces in clear language the role gender plays in our understanding of art, creativity, and aesthetic qualities. Philosophies of the past are examined for their influence over gendered ways of conceiving aesthetics; and contemporary theorists such as Arthur Danto and Luce Irigaray are situated in relation to feminist art practices. Each chapter concludes with a summary, and there is an extensive bibliography." "Carolyn Korsmeyer's style is refreshing and accessible, making the book suitable for students of philosophy, gender studies, visual studies, and art theory, as well as anyone interested in the impact of gender on aesthetics."--Jacket
