Reviews and Awards
"On Images is an important book on the topic of pictorial representation that will, no doubt, contribute significantly to our understanding of many aspects of this phenomenon, even some of the most perplexing ones...one of the most valuable and important contributions to the topic."--Mind
"Innovative and well-written. A great contribution to one of the most popular topics in aesthetics. I strongly recommend this book . One of the best on the topic."--British Journal of Aesthetics
"From start to finish, it is original, beautifully argued, and just brimming with useful ideas. It is written in clear, crisp prose and unfolds in a logical manner. I learned something from almost every sentence in this book. I predict that it will enter the ranks of the classics in the philosophy of pictures."--Dominic McIver Lopes, University of British Columbia
"[A] provocative book...more than amply illustrates his capacity for genuinely original philosophical thought.... In the breadth and depth of his coverage of this literature, his discussion is unparalleled. The account that results from this investigation is an unprecedented synthesis of the merits of these otherwise divergent views. For this reason alone, any subsequent work on pictorial representation will have to take his account into consideration. It may not be the last word on pictorial representation, but it will certainly remain a centerpiece of philosophical discussions of this topic for quite some time."--Zed Adams, The Journal of Aesthetics and Art Criticism"
