reading on restoration

I know that you're hard at work on your papers, but we might get started on the possible metaphysical implications or presuppositions related to the restoration of artworks. To begin, read:

Art and Its Preservation
Author(s): David Carrier
The Journal of Aesthetics and Art Criticism, Vol. 43 No. 3 (Spring, 1985), pp. 291-300

It's e-available.

We'll devote some of this week to more on of Rohrbaugh's argument against type-theory and to some of the problems facing musical perdurantism (4D-ism). This might be relevant:

Defending Musical Perdurantism
Caplan, Ben; Matheson, Carl
British Journal of Aesthetics, vol. 46, no. 1, pp. 59-69, January 2006

This is e-available too.
