Contemplating Art

Jerrold Levinson (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

This essay formulates a persisting problem about the authority of art criticism and situates this problem in relation to Hume's search for the standard of taste in his famous essay of that name. It sketches a complex solution to this problem, somewhat provocatively labelled therealproblem left us by Hume, a solution whose complexity is justified by the thorniness of the problem in question.

Keywords:   art criticism, Hume, taste
