On the True Sense of Art: A Critical Companion to the Transfigurements of John Sallis, a new book co-edited by KSU professor David Jones

On the True Sense of ArtKennesaw State University professor David Jones' new co-edited book titled On the True Sense of Art: A Critical Companion to the Transfigurements of John Sallis is now available. On the True Sense of Art collects essays by philosophers responding to John Sallis's Transfigurements: On the True Sense of Art as well as his other works on the philosophy of art, including Force of Imagination and Logic of Imagination.

Each of the chapters, by some of the leading thinkers in Continental philosophy, engages Sallis's work on both ancient and new senses of aesthetics--transfiguration of aesthetics--as a beginning that is always beginning again. With a responsive essay by Sallis himself, On the True Sense of Art forms a critical introduction to the thought of this generation's most important aesthetician.

The book is edited by Jason M. Wirth, Michael Schwartz, and David Jones. Order the paperback edition of On the True Sense of Art at the special discount price of $25 by visiting www.nupress.northwestern.edu and using discount code NU2016!
