Acerca de


Kelly's second edition attempts to make these happier times for aesthetics, in all its senses, surveyable. It contains 815 articles (the first edition contained 600) by an impressive range of contributors, typically 3,000-4,000 words apiece and made available online through the Oxford University Press reference engine ... The coverage of historical figures is also markedly widened, and the list of contemporary aestheticians has been brought up to date. (Times Literary Supplement)

The second edition, also with editor Kelly (Univ. of North Carolina at Charlotte), has been revised, expanded, and improved. Its 815 entries, some 250 of which are entirely new, consume 2.9 million words. New entries cover research in science and computing and new artists and movements and give increased attention to non-Western cultural areas Based on the Greek word aesthesis, meaning perception or sensation, this rich resource is to be savored one article at a time (Library Journal)

This second edition is positively 'essential.' â The second edition fully realizes the 'open work' (in Ecoâs sense) that the first edition aspired to be: a whole that can be given determinate form in a number of different ways â Graphics and images, all black and white, are used sparingly but effectively. As befits a work on this subject, the paper quality, typeface, binding, and layout are all first-rate and aesthetically appealing. This set is a necessary addition for every undergraduate and graduate library serving a liberal arts program. There is truly nothing comparable. (CHOICE)

For any collection development librarian, the bibliographies to the entries are first-rate, and for any student or researcher or lecturer, the surveys are informative and the critical apparatus relevant, mature and objective. The narrative style of the entries is mostly clear and jargon-free, and editorial standards and product quality (the work is printed on acid-free paper) excellent. (Stuart Hannabuss, Philosophy and Religion)
