Calvin Seerveld Normative Aesthetics - new from Dordt College Press

Normative Aesthetics: Sundry Writings and Occasional Lectures by Calvin G. Seerveld
John H. Kok, editor
Dordt College Press
ISBN 978-1-940567-00-6

Seerveld is convinced that philosophical aesthetics—systematic reflection on the nature and task of human imaginative life—will be normative when the thought is wholesome, edible, worth chewing, and builds the body of a community with joyful shalom. These 13 sundry writings and occasional lectures aim to spell out some of what this aesthetic imperative means for human imaginative acts, for the arts, and for the other acts and institutions where aesthetic functions play a role.
