Product description

This book, thought to be the first in English to attempt a full theoretical analysis of Hegel's philosophy of art, examines his central thesis, that both Beauty and Truth can be understood in terms of systematic coherence, and that art, as a purveyor of Truth, embodies and reflects the beliefs of the societies from which it comes.
