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 gives rise
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?"
Part of the highly regarded New Directions in Aesthetics series
