"Aesthetics" Essays and Research Papers


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 Domain

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...

 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...

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. For instance, a bed of rocks laying among a path, strewn out for an artistic affect is considered...

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. A definition is a statement of the necessary and sufficient properties of what is being defined. This statement has to prove its purpose of giving a true or false claim about the nature, or essence of art and what characterizes it from anything else. Many theorists sustain that unless we know what art is, we cannot begin to respond to it adequately or to say...

Responses to literary texts are not just intellectual; they are also aesthetic and affective (based on Heaney's poetry)

Poetry is often considered a form of art; while poems appeal to the intellect by presenting various values, attitudes and ideas, they simultaneously convey aesthetic beauty and reflect the emotive power of language. A poem’s aesthetic and affective features are vital to the communication of its intellectual messages, and all three play a role in shaping the reader’s response. Two particular examples of this are the poems ‘Personal Helicon’ (from Death of a Naturalist, 1966) and ‘Punishment’ (from...
