Traditional aesthetics is often associated with the appreciation of art, Allen Carlson shows how much of our aesthetic experience does not encompass art but nature. He argues that knowledge of what it is we are appreciating is essential to having an appropriate aesthetic experience and that scientific understanding of nature can enhance our appreciation of it, rather than denigrate it.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'I found much stimulating discussion in these pages. [Carlson] is a worthy opponent for those wedded to a more Kantian or historicist approach to natural beauty.' - British Journal of Aesthetics
