Synopsis:
This title was first published in 2002: The environment raises basic questions about many of the fundamental concepts and doctrines in aesthetics and the arts. Including new work by the leading international contributors to environmental aesthetics, this is the first book to deal with the relations between the arts and environment, directed towards a non-philosophical audience of practitioners and critics, as well as theorists. Introducing many of the basic ideas and issues in the theory of the arts, particularly as they bear on environment, this book addresses the special concerns of an aesthetics of environment and explores the implications of environmental aesthetics for understanding both aesthetic theory and the aesthetic of individual arts. Key topics covered include: the mutual relevance of art and environment, appreciation in art and nature, appraising nature, architecture and the urban environment, the relationships between environmental ethics and aesthetics, the environmental implications of some specific arts, environment and popular culture, and the significance of environment technologies for aesthetics and the arts.
