Everyday Aesthetics is a well-argued and ground-breaking piece of philosophy which has much to say about issues in contemporary philosophy of art and design theory while also helping to form a new sub-discipline within aesthetics. It also has the advantage of being immensely readable. * Tom Leddy, Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews *
a welcome book: Saito has given serious attention to an area of the human aesthetic response that has been sadly neglected in the West. * Robert Wilkinson, British Journal of Aesthetics *
The first explicit aim of Saito's book is, in effect, a reply to those who neglect or scoff at the aesthetics of mundane things and activities - an attempt to establish the credentials of 'everyday aesthetics' by showing that it renders aesthetic discourse more truthful and faithful to the richness of aesthetic experience. It is only various pre judices, she argues, that can explain the neglect of the everyday in Western aesthetic tradition. * David E. Cooper, Times Literary Supplement *
