Art, Beauty, and Pornography: A Journey through American Culture

Synopsis

When viewing the picture of a beautiful sunset, how many of us realise that, while we admire it as a work of art, we have just taken the very first step toward pornography? And that both the beauty in the sunset and the senses that recognise such beauty are very likely to be anti-art? Making a radical departure from the conventional wisdom on art and beauty, this book presents the startling thesis that things of beauty are not only unrelated to art but often responsible for pornography.
