Beauty and Other Forms of Value

Excerpt

The following work is mainly an essay in Aesthetics. The study of beauty is, I think, the best or the easiest way to approach the study of value in general. The introductory chapter explains how much I feel the need of such a study. There is no pretence of completeness, and I have thought it best to introduce as little critical matter as possible. There is more of it still than I could wish, especially in Part II.

A large part of the book consists of papers, or passages from papers, which have appeared during the last ten years. They have, however, been made the basis of a continuous work. The sources of the passages used are indicated as the passages occur. I am deeply indebted to those who have allowed me to make use of these previous writings: to the Manchester University Press, the Clarendon Press, the Aristotelian Society, the British Academy, the Editors of the Bulletin of the John Rylands Library, Philosophy (formerly the Journal of Philosophical Studies), and the British Journal of Psychology, and finally to my own publishers, Messrs. Macmillan, for permission to reprint some pages of an earlier work.

S. ALEXANDER MANCHESTER, May 1933 . . .
