Dickies arguments against the various theories of aesthetic attitude, aesthetic perception, and aesthetic experience virtually brought classical theories of the aesthetic to a halt. His institutional theory of art was perhaps the most discussed proposal in aesthetics during the 1970s and 1980s, inspiring both supporters who produced variations on the theory as well as passionate detractors who thought the theory thoroughly wrongheaded. Dickie has also written widely on the history of aesthetics, and his work ranks among the best examples of analytic aesthetics.The philosophy of George Dickie continues to provoke reaction and reflection. The essays in this collection pay homage not only to Dickies ideas but also to his influence. A brief biography of George Dickie and a bibliography of his works complete the volume.
