What is the concept and the essence of art? Günter Figal looks at this question from perspectives which complement each other so that an answer emerges from the cohesion of these perspectives. He explores art from antiquity to the modern age: music, literature and the visual arts including the designing of articles of daily use are all dealt with in this work.
