Palgrave Macmillan; 1st edition
This PDF ebook, titled “Nature, Artforms, and the World Around Us: An Introduction to the Regions of Aesthetic Experience,” provides a comprehensive view of the aesthetic realm by situating the various major artforms within the setting of nature and the built environment as they emerge within the field of experience. The title of the book is “Nature; Artforms; and the World Around Us: An Introduction to the Regions of Aesthetic Experience.” Each chapter provides an illustration of the regional ontology of the form under consideration, which is defined as the exhaustive collection of eidetic characteristics that outline the space of the art. It draws from the statements of artists, the writings of important thinkers in the history of philosophy such as Dewey, Hegel, Plato, and Heidegger, as well as the writings of numerous commentators on art.
This book is one of a kind due to the systematic and phenomenological approach that it takes, as well as the comprehensive treatment of aesthetics that it provides.
