Rezensionen
"As a whole,Walden's collection is a valuable addition to thephilosophical literature on photography. It is well organized andcontains a sustained discussion of many of the more provocativeclaims that philosophers have made about photography. It is stillan open question whether any of these claims are true, but ratherthan simply dwelling upon the banal truths that we all alreadyagree upon, it is a lot more interesting." (The Journal ofAesthetics and Art Criticism, Summer 2010)

"This is a very valuable collection that gathers together a set ofarticles and issues that should be of general interest tophilosophers of art." (Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews,February 2009)

"How does one accept or deny 'reality' in photographicexcursions? This is the central issue in this extraordinarycompilation of 13 essays by contemporary philosophers who argueback and forth (in editor Walden's clever arrangement) so thatreaders must engage their own minds within the constantlyconflicting (theoretical and personal) propositions/explanations.This is a rich, provocative, intelligent, challenging, andimportant compilation. Highly recommended." (Choice,November 2008)

"Many of the essays are well written and indeed groundbreaking... .Given its overall depth, the anthology is worth reading byany critic, curator or student of the arts." (Prefix Photo,2008)

"Will enlighten the student and refresh the informed.Contributes greatly to the literature and will occupy a favoritespot on the book shelves." (Metapsychology)"Required reading for anyone interested in analytic philosophy ofphotography, Scott Walden's collection includes essays by most ofthe major writers in this area. The combination of classic pieceswith newly commissioned work makes this both a useful referencebook and a stimulating contribution to ongoing debates aboutphotographic representation."
--Nigel Warburton, The Open University

"Any adequate aesthetic theory must accommodate facts about theproduction, interpretation, and evaluation of photographic images.Scott Walden's valuable collection should help bring the realitiesand significance of photography into the philosophical mainstream;it provides rich and well-informed reflections uponepistemological, ontological, and evaluative aspects ofphotographic process and product."
--Robert Kraut, Ohio State University

"This is a first-rate collection of essays in the philosophy ofphotography by the leading figures in the analytic literature.Remarkably, it is also the first such collection to appear inEnglish, running from the classic essays by Walton and Scrutonright through to current work by leading exponents such as Lopes,Maynard, and Currie. Covering a range of questions foundational tothe epistemology, ontology, ethics, and aesthetics of photography,it is probably the most wide-ranging single book available on thephilosophy of photography to date. As such it is a realachievement, sure to foster debate."
--Diarmuid Costello, University of Warwick
