About the Authors
  • This book is about aesthetic processes and play from the perspectives of psychologists, philosophers, and semiologists. They explore the underlying processes from many viewpoints, including the prehistoric roots of language and art; the historical evolution of artistic, literary, and musical styles; the structure of artworks from both gestalt and semiotic perspectives; the biological and psychological processes underlying production and appreciation; the appeal of sentimental art; emotional responses to art and other aesthetic forms; personality in relation to artistic style; the testing and measurement of art-related skills; the relations between social life and literary understanding; literature in relation to media; as well as neurobiological, developmental and individual growth perspectives on play activity.

    Reviews & endorsements

    "...this volume is both intelligible and compelling for almost everyone with an interest in aesthetics....Superb contributions on artist psychology and knowledge in relation to interpretation provide bulletproof protection for category approaches to art, and breathtakingly original essays on sentimental art and the complementarity of art and design deserve to be read alongside the canonical works of philosophical aesthetics." Journal of Aesthetics and Art Criticism
