Feeling Beauty

This chapter explores subjective variations in three ways: the variety of aesthetic objects, the variety of emotions associated with aesthetic experience, and the differing ways in which those emotions are processed. The chapter also tries to describe what makes it possible to use what we know about visual and aural pleasures to create a model for aesthetics. Emotion is key to aesthetic experience, and as it shows in the first section here, the emotions of aesthetic life exhibit characteristics that may subtly distinguish them from those of everyday life.

Keywords:   aesthetic objects, emotions, aesthetic experience, visual pleasures, aural pleasures, everyday life
