9780754604341: The Reach of the Aesthetic: Collected Essays on Art and Nature

According to the author, aesthetics applies to a much wider domain than the art world alone. This work focuses on the web of interrelations between aesthetic and wider human concerns. Among topics explored are concepts of truth and falsity (within art and aesthetic experience generally); superficiality and depth in aesthetic appreciation of nature and moral beauty and ugliness; the projects of integrating a life; fashioning a life as a work of art; experiments in the aesthetic re-working of the "sacred"; and the role of imagination within and in our attempts to place and identify ourselves. The essays are interlinked and intend to provide useful themes for discussion groups.
