BJA Symposium on Nehamas’ “Only a Promise of Happiness”

The new issue of the British Journal of Aesthetics includes a symposium on Alexander Nehamas’ Only a Promise of Happiness: The Place of Beauty in a World of Art, with essays by Carolyn Korsmeyer and Berys Gaut, followed by a response from Nehamas. Corina and I thought some of you would like to know of it. The relevant section of the issue’s TOC is reproduced below, including links to the pieces.
