The World of Art Education According to Lanier.
This monograph presents the views acquired over an art educator's 40 years of teaching. Divided into four sections, the book's first section is a basic introduction to the purpose and intentions in writing the book. The second is on philosophical bases and derivative principles. This section contains four parts: (1) democratizing the range of aesthetic objects; (2) eliminating developmental purposes; (3) aesthetics as the curriculum; and (4) contextualism in aesthetic response. The third section consists of a summary of the history of art education in the United States from the late 1940s through the development of discipline based art education (DBAE) in the 1980s. The fourth section is called "Randomly Organized Opinions" and contains opinions on eight different aspects of art education: (1) the apotheosis of art education; (2) politics and art education; (3) art teacher education; (4) multicultural art education; (5) outsiders in art education; (6) newer media; (7) repeat performance; and (8) coda. Contains 20 references. (DK)
