BETTER LIVING THROUGH CRITICISM by A.O. Scott

February 11, 2016

A.O. Scott spoke about his book, Better Living Through Criticism, at Politics & Prose on Thursday, February 11, 2016.

The former book critic for Newsday, Scott has been The New York Times film critic since 2000, and his contributions to publications including Lingua Franca and The New York Times Magazine have examined= a wide range of cultural artifacts. His first book builds on this familiarity with myriad forms of expression to examine criticism in the widest sense, and as Scott moves from the ancients to post-modern thinkers, he shows that criticism is not only one of the most creative ways to think, but that without it, creativity in the forms of literature, the visual arts, and even social and personal relationships, would cease to thrive.
