Commences with Arthur Danto's claim that art has exhausted its creative possibilities, and that we have, in effect, witnessed the end of art. On the basis of a comparison between modernism and postmodernism in the visual arts, it is argued that Danto is wrong. The argument is then contextualized in relation to the theory of art and the aesthetic broached earlier in this book.
