A balanced reality for aesthetic properties
Adams, Heather Cooper

This thesis offers an explication of Jerrold Levinson’s arguments for the realism of aesthetic properties, insofar as he claims that some are real as response-dependent properties, and others are real as non-response-dependent properties. A range of objections are considered before finally concluding that Levinson’s position fares no better than the anti-realist’s version of aesthetic properties as dispositions.
