Larry Shiner

Thinking Art

  • Presents a broad and comprehensive survey of the field of the olfactory arts and the aesthetic uses of smell
  • Engages with both aesthetic and ethical issues related to the use of smell in artistic creations
  • Contributes to current debates over the nature of art and aesthetic experience by arguing for broader concepts of art and the aesthetic that include the so-called "lower" senses
