Aesthetic Domain The domain that interests me the most is the aesthetic domain. The aesthetic domain is the appreciation of the arts and enjoyment of sensory experiences. I believe art is an important part to learning and expands the imagination and creation of a child. Art allows children to express feelings, thoughts and creativity. Although every domain is imperative to a child’s education, I believe the aesthetic domain ranks as one of the most important domains. When the aesthetic domain...

Representationalism and Aesthetics

Representationalism and Aesthetics If one were to be provided a spectator’s view of visitors of an art museum, they would witness a microcosm of the appreciation of art in its entirety. Some observers of art might simply glance at a piece of artwork and shrug it off for its unaesthetic appearance, others might try to delve deeper into what it’s standing for. Multiple factors would possibly come into play; the audiences’ reaction, the inquisition into the artist’s original intention, and perhaps...

aesthetic value

? 10. Aesthetic Value I have found it impossible (though not for want of trying) to find a way of avoiding commitment to a concept of aesthetic value. The general theory of value remains in an unsatisfactory state; and aesthetic value in particular presents various unsettled questions. But, as in the first edition, I find myself always driven back to the idea that in calling an artwork a good one -- or a good poem or good choreography -- we must be ascribing some form of (nonmoral) value to it...

arts ans aesthetics

evolve during the 20th century as well. The main recent sense of the word "art" is roughly as an abbreviation for creative art or "fine art." Here we mean that skill is being used to express the artist's creativity, or to engage the audience's aesthetic sensibilities, or to draw the audience towards consideration of the "finer" things. Often, if the skill is being used in a functional object, people will consider it a craft instead of art, a suggestion which is highly disputed by many Contemporary...

Aesthetic Values and Objects

1. When looking at the differences between cultural, natural, and truly aesthetic objects, it’s relatively easy to define each in their own ways. Cultural objects differ from natural objects in the sense that cultural objects have been placed in an artistic manner by, and for the human population, whereas natural objects are in the most basic term, objects placed by nature for no other external reason.

The Role of Theory in Aesthetics

Weitz and the Role of Theory in Aesthetics In the past, the main goal of aesthetics has been to formulate a definition of art.

All throughout the day we are bombarded with music and every day sounds, most of which remain in our periphery.

On Adorno S Aesthetic Theory

(and, even less convincingly, jazz as a kind of false novelty. But see by contrast Adorno’s remark, about those critics of Beckett's who suggest that he keeps doing the same thing!) Whatever the legitimacy or illegitimacy of Adorno's particular aesthetic judgements, the point of theoretical interest here, is that this ability to *impute* and *dispute* the truth or falsity of any given claim to "novelty" is (and surely this is uncontroversial) part, indeed a major part of the situation of art. Thus...
