Book News
Launches an ambitious series of some 20 volumes in which Ross (philosophy and comparative literature, State U. of New York-Binghamton) plans to examine the western concept of Good from classical to modern interpretations, and its manifestation in truth, nature, work, place, property, air, death, and other aspects of life. His treatment of art discusses Diaphoros, Mimesis, nature, judgement, the end of art, origin, abundance, and exposure. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
