'Arthur Danto is a philosopher with a system, whose much discussed aesthetic theory cannot be understood adequately without grasping how it is embedded in his analysis of action, historiography and knowledge. Although some Americans have written about his system, we have as yet too little comprehension of how it appears from the vantage point of Europe. This monograph by a gifted young Italian scholar, which will change that situation. [It] presents a remarkably original, highly sympathetic perspective, one that will surely influence debate in her native country, in the United States, and everywhere that Danto is now being read.' David Carrier, Champney Family Professor, Case Western Reserve University/Cleveland Institute of Art, USA 'Tiziana Andina s Arthur Danto: Philosopher of Pop, written in a friendly and enthusiastic style that is quite suitable to its subject, should do much to enliven debate about the main themes of Danto s philosophy of art. Those themes are here, and for the first time, both viewed as a whole and placed in the context of Danto s broader philosophical commitments, whose metaphysical, epistemological, psychological and linguistic underpinnings are made clear in Andina s lucid text.' Jerrold Levinson, Distinguished University Professor, University of Maryland, USA
