The Arts of the Beautiful

  • By Etienne Gilson
-- First paperback edition.
-- A lucid and deft argument for art as "the making of beauty for beauty's own sake", The Arts of the Beautiful brilliantly addresses the dominant notion of art as an act of expression or communication. Gilson maintains that art is not a matter of knowing, but that it belongs to an order other than that of knowledge, the order of making.
-- A world-renowned philosopher and historian, Etienne Gilson held the position of Professor of Medieval Philosophy at the Sorbonne and subsequently at the College de France. He helped to found the Pontifical Institute of Medieval Studies at the University of Toronto. He is the author of many works, including Forms and Substance in the Arts, The Philosopher and Theology, and The Spirit of Medieval Philosophy.
-- First published by Charles Scribner's Sons ('65).
