Empiricism

Abstract

In this chapter we shall begin our investigations by considering an influential aesthetic theory which relates in important ways to the theses being argued for here. This theory provides a straightforward argument for the IMH. Unfortunately from our point of view, the theory is mistaken. Consequently, we must find another argument for the IMH. On the other hand, in seeing what is wrong with the theory we put ourselves in a better position to argue for the ATH.
