Omtale: Cultural Appropriation and the Arts
Now, for the first time, a philosopher undertakes a systematic investigation of the moral and aesthetic issues to which cultural appropriation gives rise. * Cultural appropriation is a pervasive feature of the contemporary world (the Parthenon Marbles remain in London; white musicians from Bix Beiderbeck to Eric Clapton have appropriated musical styles from African-American culture) * Young offers the first systematic philosophical investigation of the moral and aesthetic issues to which cultural appropriation gives rise * Tackles head on the thorny issues arising from the clash and integration of cultures and their artifacts * Questions considered include: "Can cultural appropriation result in the production of aesthetically successful works of art?" and "Is cultural appropriation in the arts morally objectionable?" * Part of the highly regarded New Directions in Aesthetics series
