Artworld Metaphysics turns a serious eye upon points of the artworld, and articulates many of the difficulties, ideas, and norms implicit within the real practices of inventive construction, interpretation, review, and commodification. Aesthetic thought is handled as descriptive and explanatory, instead of normative: a thought that pertains to artworld realities as a semantic thought pertains to the fragments of usual language it seeks to explain. Robert
Kraut examines emotional expression, right interpretation and objectivity within the context of artworld perform, the relevance of jazz to aesthetic thought, and the targets of ontology (artworld and otherwise). He additionally considers the relation among paintings and language, the confusions of postmodern relativism, and
the relation among artistic/critical perform and aesthetic theory.
