"George Dickie's Art and Value is an elegant restatement of the virtues of the institutional theory of art and his conception of artistic evaluation. This lively and trenchant riposte to critics will ensure that his work remains much discussed and will prove to be an invaluable resource for students." Matthew Kieran, University of Leeds. <!--end-->
