There has been for some years a consciousness that in modern thought Benedetto Croce ought to be regarded very highly indeed. And yet his high significance has been, for the most part, taken on trust. No one can pretend that Croce is read generally in this country. The deterrents have been, in the first place, the fact that he wrote in Italian, and then, when he became translated, the greatness of the extent of reading necessary to enter into the ideas underlying his philosophy. But the time would seem now to have come, with the publication of this short and comprehensive work, when it is no longer reasonable to withhold serious consideration from Croce's views. Croce divides his subject into four parts: (1) What is Art? (2) Prejudices Relating to Art. (3) The Place of Art in the Spirit and in Human Society. (4) Criticism and the History of Art.
