New Republic;5/30/55, Vol. 132 Issue 22, p17
The article presents information about the book "Creative Intuition in Art and Poetry," by Jacques Maritain. The book is now made available in a low-priced paper back edition, is the latest in a series of works published in recent years that have given new life to the almost defunct discipline of aesthetics. Philosophers were exclusively concerned with problems arising from the methodology of the physical sciences, and when art was not looked on as a superior form of amusement, it was relegated to the status of a decidedly inferior form of pseudo-scientific knowledge.
