Art as a Thinking ProcessVisual Forms of Knowledge Production

 - Art as a Thinking Process
Art as the result of a thinking process (a vast survey of recent debates around art schools and their methods).
The work of art has often been a battleground—its decorative and formal aspects positioned against its nature as an embodiment of cognitive acts. Leonardo da Vinci's claim that art be a “cosa mentale” is winning at last: recent debates around art schools and their methods, of which this book is a vast survey, demonstrate that, now more than ever, art is considered the result of a thinking process.
