What they are saying about Evolution Through Art:
“I recommend this book—highly—to art lovers.”
Stephen Hicks, philosopher
There is a newly-discovered version of the legend of Pandora’s Box. In this third version insanity, despair, and hatred had overrun the world and Pandora, driven by a sense of hope, opened the box by unlocking it with a key. Out from the box rose up all the glories of humanity and they spread throughout the world with undiminished splendor. Pandora discovered that the glories had never disappeared, but it was humankind that had lost the key to identifying the magnificence that lay before them.
This collection of essays will give you the key that unlocks the transformative power of art.
Have you ever been puzzled by the postmodern art shown in contemporary art museums? Or speculated on the motivations of postmodern artists and curators who show it? Or wondered what it says about our contemporary culture and if there is hope for our future? In Art: Modern, Postmodern, and Beyond, philosopher Stephen Hicks and artist Michael Newberry sift through the seemingly inexplicable aesthetic confusion to arrive at meaningful understanding of art and its antithesis. In this book you will gain an understanding of:
• How modernist reduction led to postmodern nihilism
• Why the postmodern experiment is self-defeating
• How understanding postmodern art enables us to remove it from
its favored status and replace it with more substantial art
• How aesthetic ideas matter in shaping flourishing ends
• How being reasonable restores excitement, confidence, and joy in everything to do with art
