Publisher's Summary

Art as Experience evolved from John Dewey's Willam James Lectures, delivered at Harvard University from February to May 1931.

In his Introduction, Abraham Kaplan places Dewey's philosophy of art within the context of his pragmatism. Kaplan demonstrates in Dewey's esthetic theory his traditional "movement from a dualism to a monism" and discusses whether Dewey's viewpoint is that of the artist, the respondent, or the critic.

The book is published by Southern Illinois University Press.

Dense, but enlightening!

Dewey is not for the faint of heart. There are deep insights on every page. This is a very difficult read, but worthwhile.

Computer voice

Not a reading by a human being. Incredibly hard to read and follow along because of narration.

Great book, bad narration

Didactic but full of wisdom.

This is a profound voice but it comes from another era. It's of wisdom but sounds like a junior high school Civics lecture at times. but to anyone who's willing to stick it out, it truly pays off.

Good piece of aesthetic theory, poor audio book

Audible has divided this audio book into chapters that do not correspond with the book chapters, making it difficult to go back and re-listen (for study purposes, for example).

There were some issues with skipping, or pausing that was annoying.

The narrator was fair...a little monotonous and uninspiring.

I was left in no doubt that I would never listen to this audio book again (although I might read the book) so I returned it.
