Yet they usually lack any theology of art or taste adequate to deal with aesthetic disputes. In this provocative book, Frank Burch Brown offers a constructive, ""ecumenical"" approach to artistic taste and aesthetic judgment--a non-elitist but discriminating theological aesthetics that has ""teeth but no fangs.""

The Century of Taste offers an exposition and critical account of the central figures in the early development of the modern philosophy of art. Dickie traces the modern theory of taste from its first formulation by Francis Hutcheson, to blind alleys followed by Alexander Gerard and Archibald Allison, its refinement and complete expression by Hume, and finally to its decline in the hands of Kant. In a clear and straightforward style, Dickie offers sympathetic discussions of the theoretical aims of these philosophers, but does not shy from controversy--pointing out, for instance, the obscurities

This text examines the meaning of the established premise that "taste is a chemical sense". In particular, it considers the degree to which chemical principles apply to the phenomena associated with the inductive phase of taste; describes the structure and properties of compounds of varying tastes that allow the nature of the receptors for different tastes to be postulated; and includes interdisciplinary observations that maybe applied to the solution of problems related to the chemical nature of taste. The largest portion of text is directed towards sweetness.
