To Marcia Thompson,

Thanks you for your information.
Eaton's books include:
Basic issues in Aesthetics (Warsworth Publishing Company 1988),
Art and Non-art : reflections on an orange crate and a mouse call
(Associated University Press). Also , I think you can also find books from
George Dickie because I hear that Eaton is Dickie's student. For example,
Evaluating Art (Temple University Press 1988)
Aesthetics: A Critical anthology (St. Martin's Press 1977)

Could you also give me more information on the workshop you have taken from
Eaton? What activities have you participated and what discussions are
involved?
