‘Aesthetics is commonly known as the study of sensory or sensori-emotional values….Aesthetics studies new ways of seeing and of perceiving the world.’
‘We can call a person, a house, a symphony, a fragrance….beautiful. What characteristics do they share which give them that status? What possible feature could a proof and a fragrance both share in virtue of which they both count as beautiful? …each art form has its own system for the judgement of aesthetics.
…there has been long debate on how perception of beauty in the natural world …is supposed to relate to perceiving beauty in art or artefacts.’
