In Art and Truth after Plato, Tom Rockmore argues that Plato has in fact never been satisfactorily answered--and to demonstrate that, he offers a comprehensive account of Platos influence through nearly the whole history of Western aesthetics. Rockmore offers a cogent reading of the post-Platonic aesthetic tradition as a series of responses to Platos position, examining a stunning diversity of thinkers and ideas. He visits Aristotles Poetics, the medieval Christians, Kants Critique of Judgment, Hegels phenomenology, Marxism, social realism, Heidegger, and many other works and thinkers, ending with a powerful synthesis that lands on four central aesthetic arguments that philosophers have debated.

More than a mere history of aesthetics, Art and Truth after Plato presents a fresh look at an ancient question, bringing it into contemporary relief.
