Aesthetic as Science of Expression and General Linguistic

Benedetto CROCE (1866 - 1952), translated by Douglas AINSLIE (1865 - 1948)

One of the earliest works of this Italian philosopher and literary critic, Aesthetic as Science of Expression and General Linguistic marks the beginning of Croce's elaboration of his highly influential ideas of aesthetics. Croce defines art in terms of intuition and expression, thus replacing beauty as the primary criterion for aesthetic evaluation. - Summary by Mary J
