Abstract and Keywords
This chapter discusses the way in which Wollheim recruits the insights of psychoanalysis to develop a distinctive approach to philosophy of art in particular, and other branches of philosophy more generally, such as philosophy of mind and ethics. Wollheim develops an original approach to artistic expression and expressive perception of emotion by drawing on psychoanalysts’ treatment of projection. He also develops an original approach to art criticism which he dubs criticism as retrieval, and which involves what he dubs the ‘repsychologization’ of pictorial meaning.
