Reviews

Despite the quibbles registered above, cheers to the authors for a fascinating and stimulating book! ( The Journal of Aesthetics & Art Criticism , 1 November 2013) ...rarely does one locate as informative and ingenious analysis of [wine's] aesthetic qualities as this recent volume by Burnham and Skilleas. ...the authors do every student of philosophical aesthetics a welcome service by outfitting their comprehensive argument with one of the clearest expositions of applied aesthetics and its critical use of cultivated practices, sensory competencies, and intersubjective norms for grounding judgements of taste that this reviewer as yet encountered. ( Choice , 1 March 2013) Summing Up: Highly recommended. Lower-level undergraduates and above; general readers. ( Choice , 1 March 2013) Fascinating and extremely well informed --Jancis Robinson
