TL;DR: Freedberg's "The Power of Images" as mentioned in this paper is an extraordinary critical achievement, exhilarating in its polemic against aesthetic orthodoxy, endlessly fascinating in its details, and is a powerful, disturbing book.
Abstract: "This learned and heavy volume should be placed on the shelves of every art historical library." E. H. Gombrich, "New York Review of Books" "This is an engaged and passionate work by a writer with powerful convictions about art, images, aesthetics, the art establishment, and especially the discipline of art history. It is animated by an extraordinary erudition." Arthur C. Danto, "The Art Bulletin" "Freedberg's ethnographic and historical range is simply stunning. . . . "The Power of Images" is an extraordinary critical achievement, exhilarating in its polemic against aesthetic orthodoxy, endlessly fascinating in its details. . . . This is a powerful, disturbing book." T. J. Jackson Lears, "Wilson Quarterly" "Freedberg helps us to see that one cannot do justice to the images of art unless one recognizes in them the entire range of human responses, from the lowly impulses prevailing in popular imagery to their refinement in the great visions of the ages."

TL;DR: Gunn as discussed by the authors argues that this pragmatic legacy must be revaluated in the light of challenges posed by structuralist and post-structuralist theory, and challenges the assumptions of modern criticism with a revised interpretation of pragmatism.
Abstract: This important new work is at once a provocative defence of the kind of moral reflection once associated in America with the writings of Lionel Trilling and Edmund Wilson and an acknowledgement that this pragmatic legacy must be revaluated in the light of challenges posed by structuralist and post-structuralist theory. Gunn challenges the assumptions of modern criticism with a revised interpretation of pragmatism and its critical legacy.
