The Philistine Controversy edited by Dave Beech, John Roberts (Verso) Questions on art, which were once seen as overloaded with liberal sentiment, are now being taken seriously by the philosophical Left in the English-speaking world.

Artistic objects and performances satisfy rules of composition that place them in a recognizable style. The world of the Forms is rational and unchanging; the world of physical appearances is changeable and irrational, and only has reality to the extent that it succeeds in imitating the Forms. Basically, unless we intend to reintroduce the "art police", we need to accept that bad art is here to stay. What is affirmed is not that we cannot know the world and its totality in some abstract or “scientific” way.

Locke, for example, stated that the senses are the ultimate source of ideas. This is not to downplay the value of science. A competent nurse must be able to use the technical resources available.

Judgments of aesthetic value seem to often involve many other kinds of issues as well. For Hutcheson beauty is disclosed by an inner mental sense, but is a subjective fact rather than an objective one. Pater’s essays take up a two-sided idea of the Renaissance, both normative and subversive, celebrating canonical artist-heroes even while depicting them engaged in behavior that would have scandalized Victorian society. (For example, many of the male artists he studies, such as Michelangelo and Leonardo da Vinci, are romantically involved with other men.) His recurring strategy is to engage with a well-known author or artist in a way that seems to agree with conventional wisdom, pretending to fit in with accepted judgments while at the same time proposing his own audacious opinions.
