On the occasion of the publication of the Czech translation of 'Languages of Art' (1968) by Nelson Goodman (1906-1998) and the hundredth anniversary of his birth, the article considers the importance of this revolutionary work. It analyses its innovative approach to the philosophy of art, places its ideas in the context of contemporary Anglo-Saxon aesthetics, and describes its impact on the development of the discipline. It focuses mainly on how the book helped to overcome the lack of respect for aesthetics when the work was first published, and considers new perspectives it has offered to the semiotic approach to art. The article concludes with a brief biographical sketch of Goodman.
