The largest radical publishing house in the English-speaking world, Verso Books knows a thing or two about looking at art from a different : Format Team. aesthetic theory, aesthetic experience, and their applications. Berlant finds in the aesthetic a source, a sign, and a standard of human value”. It is this human value which is one leg of the metaphor and the very basis for the view that metaphor is the foundation for bothFile Size: KB.

    It is remarkably appropriate that this work on aesthetics should have been written by George Santayana, who is probably the most brilliant philosophic writer and the philosopher with the strongest sense of beauty since Plato. It is not a dry metaphysical treatise, as works on aesthetics so often are, but is itself a fascinating document: as much a revelation of the beauty of language as of the 5/5(1). This book develops a naturalistic aesthetic theory that accounts for aesthetic phenomena in mathematics in the same terms as it accounts for more traditional aesthetic phenomena. Building upon a view advanced by James McAllister, the assertion is that beauty in science does not confine itself to anecdotes or personal idiosyncrasies, but rather.

    This book is intended to provide a parallel body of theory that is better suited to guide the new forms of architectural practice we see emerging today. From new technologies to new materials, the truth is that we can now produce architectural forms that previously have never been possible—and thinking through these directions in aesthetic. 2. Why Taste Became the Metaphor for Aesthetic Judgment. We have mentioned briefly the basic ideas that created the foundation for theories of taste, but we still need an explanation as to why taste became the metaphor for aesthetic judgment. The sense of taste, in ancient times, was connected with the appetite, not with rational judgments.

Theodor Adorno () was undoubtedly the foremost thinker of the Frankfurt School, the influential group of German thinkers that fled to the US in the s, including such thinkers as Herbert Marcuse and Max Horkheimer.

His work has proved enormously influential in sociology, philosophy and cultural theory. Aesthetic Theory is Adorno's posthumous magnum opus and the 5/5(2).
