Oxford Art Online is an innovative new gateway that offers users the ability to access and search the vast content of Grove Art Online and Oxford art reference in one location. With the 2008 complete redesign and the addition of substantial new Oxford reference content, Oxford Art Online offers the most extensive and easily searchable online art resource available today, a virtual art reference library of unparalleled scope and depth.The Encyclopedia of Aesthetics features more than 600 articles by more than 500 globally recognized art historians, philosophers, and theorists. While aesthetics is often thought of as a Western tradition beginning in the 18th century, the roots of an interdisciplinary critical approach to art and culture run far deeper ? from the Classical era through the Renaissance and up to the present day. From Plato to Heidegger, Romanticism to Post-Modernism, Beauty to Ugliness, this authoritative source provides an even representation of the wide range of competing ideas in the field today. This encyclopedia surveys the full breadth of critical thought on art, culture, and society; it is a comprehensive survey of major concepts, thinkers, and debates about the meaning, uses, and value of all the arts from painting and sculpture to literature, music, theater, dance, television, film, and popular culture. Of special interest are in-depth surveys of Western aesthetics and broad coverage of non-Western traditions and theories of art. The full text of this reference work is available and searchable within Oxford Art Online, and is also cross-searchable with Grove Art Online content.
