Author: 

Koenig, Bernard

Credentials: 

Ph.D, Fanshawe College,Canada

ART MATTERS is a clear and comprehensive overview of art criticism as it relates to both the value of art and the aesthetics of art. The author offers a new perspective on how science, philosophy and art overlap each other, the author argues that art can give us knowledge of our world and our place in it the same way that science or philosophy do (per se Deleuze or Kristeva).
