Duncum, Paul – International Journal of Art & Design Education, 2007
While rejecting modernist philosophical aesthetics, the author argues for the use in art education of a current, ordinary-language definition of aesthetics as visual appearance and effect, and its widespread use in many diverse cultural sites is demonstrated.

Dash, Paul – International Journal of Art & Design Education, 2006
