In Touch with the Past

Carolyn Korsmeyer

  • Takes a view of the operation of touch as an aesthetic sense
  • Defends the importance of the genuine, the "real" thing, rather than a replica
  • Reviews the ontology that best suits an account of persistence over time of things that are valued for being the Real Thing
