Now, for the first time, a philosopher undertakes a systematic
investigation of the moral and aesthetic issues to which cultural
appropriation gives rise.
Cultural appropriation is a pervasive feature of the contemporary
world (the Parthenon Marbles remain in London; white musicians from
Bix Beiderbeck to Eric Clapton have appropriated musical styles
from African-American culture)
Young offers the first systematic philosophical investigation of
the moral and aesthetic issues to which cultural appropriation
Tackles head on the thorny issues arising from the clash and
integration of cultures and their artifacts
Questions considered include: "Can cultural appropriation result in
the production of aesthetically successful works of art?" and "Is
cultural appropriation in the arts morally objectionable?"
