Product Overview

Scholar Clyde Taylor exposes the concept of "art" as a device employed by Euro-American culture to dominate historical interpretation. He challenges the history of aesthetics as a recent invention of privileged Western consumerism. Examining various texts, Taylor demonstrates how rationales of "art" are used to mask personal, class, and cultural biases.
