Hamilton, James R.
Journal of Aesthetic Education, v43 n3 p80-106 Fall 2009
In this essay, Hamilton responds to criticisms of his book "The Art of Theater" (Malden, MA: Blackwell, 2007). Acknowledging that he expected that the central proposals in "The Art of Theater" would seem a little strange to philosophers, he reiterates his belief that the three general facts of any theatrical performance are its presentation, its preparation, and its reception; and questions why philosophers involved in performing arts to do not hold this view. "The Art of Theater" was designed to precipitate that discussion, and judging by the quality of the discussion contained in this issue of "Journal of Aesthetic Education," in has succeeded admirably in meeting that goal.
