Introducing Aesthetics

Introducing Aesthetics

Everyday we talk about the aesthetics of a piece of art or design. But aesthetics goes beyond the simple experience of art. It is also a philosophy, in which perceptions, feelings and emotions combine to form the whole nature of experience. Through clear text and fitting illustrations, Introducing Aesthetics provides a captivating insight into the important issues of modern politics, psychoanalysis and art.

    While a general idea can be gotten from reading Introducing Aesthetics: A Graphic Guide, there is just too much material that the author is trying to cover in too few pages. I wouldn't mind looking in...
