A basic motif, postmodernism's distribution of meaning over space rather than time, recurs throug...(Read More)

Inexhaustibility by Contrast
Stephen David Ross - Author

The richness of art is manifested in contrast: contrast with other works of art, other features of human experience, other times and places, and other forms of judgment and understanding. The possibilities of contrast are inexhaustible. Every being shares this inexhaustibility of openness to novel possibilities, although inexhaustibility is most fully realized in art.

The general theory of art and aesthetic value developed in this book is ...(Read More)
