Bentham and the Arts considers the skeptical challenge presented by Bentham’s hedonistic utilitarianism to the existence of the aesthetic as represented in the oft uoted statement that ‘Prejudice apart the game of push pin is of eual value with the arts and sciences of music and poetry If the game of push pin furnish pleasure it is valuable than either’ Ranging from poetry and sexual nonconformity to the auto icon and public sculpture from Hume Kant and de Staël to Freud and Michel Onfray an excellent crew of contributors brings Jeremy Bentham out from the shadow cast by John Stuart Mill with much new to say on taste and politics
