Postmodern Anxiety & the Aesthetics of Destruction - Postmodern Anxiety & the Aesthetics of Destruction To borrow a term from the seminal postmodern scholarship of Ihab Hassan, we are living in a moment of indeterminacy. As linearity went the way of modernism, today's culture is one of interconnectivity, webs and networks. We privilege teamwork, democracy, easy and equal access to knowledge above all else. Aesthetics of art and the rhetoric of corporation (that is in turn borrowed from artistic practices) are changing as a result. Formalism has given way to more open creativity....   [tags: Aesthetics Information Essays]

Aesthetics - Aesthetics Kant defined aesthetic as both, “the analysis of taste and the analysis of sensible cognition or intuition” . Aesthesis, means “sensation”, the Greeks made a distinction between aesthesis autophues (natural sensation) and aesthesis epistemonike (acquired sensation). We may say that aesthetics is both the study of aesthetic objects and of the specific and subjective reactions of observers, readers, or audiences to the work of art. Aesthetics is necessarily interdisciplinary and may be interpretive, prescriptive, descriptive, or a combination of these....   [tags: Art] 936 words

Art and Aesthetics - Art and Aesthetics Art is usually referred to as the visual arts, where a piece of work is judged through the aesthetics in which it creates. However, art refers to all human endeavors, including the product of oneÂ’s creative impulse. In other words, art does not have to be innovative to be good. I believe art is the communication of an idea, be it visual, musical, communicative or other. Art is the interplay between the conscious and unconscious part of our being, between what is real and what is an illusion; it is the voice of our soul through color and form in a constant search for connection with something beyond....   [tags: Art] 1094 words

Henrik Ibsen: His Two Aesthetics - ... Mastering the staging of 21 plays by Eugene Scribe, who is known for being the father of the well-made social problem play, helped him with this shift. The three major plays that mark the beginning of this movement are The League of Youth, Pillars of Society and A Doll’s House. In the first two of the three plays, Ibsen relies heavily on the Scribean model of the well-made play. Stephen S. Stanton says that a well-made play should consist of the following seven components: [1] a plot based on a secret known to the audience but withheld from certain characters…; [2] a pattern of increasingly intense action and suspense…; [3] a series of ups and downs in the hero’s fortunes…;[4] the counterpunch of peripeteia and scene a faire…; [5] a central misunderstanding or quiproquo, made obvious to the spectator but withheld from the participants; [6] a logical and credible denouement; and [7] the reproduction of the overall action pattern in the individual acts....   [tags: Biography, Writer]

Ludwig Wittgenstein: Aesthetics and Beauty - I disagree with Ludwig Wittgenstein when he states that aesthetics “draws one’s attention to certain features, to place things side by side so as to exhibit these features” because of the logic that gives birth to the thoughts that led to this statement. This logic questions the ability of a person to ascertain what “beauty” is, what contains the quality known as “beauty”, and the levels of beauty and how they can be measured and compared.

A Brief History of Aesthetics - A Brief History of Aesthetics Aesthetics is the theoretical study of the arts and related types of behavior and experience. It is traditionally regarded as a branch of philosophy, concerned with the understanding of beauty and its manifestations in art and nature. However, in the latter 20th century there developed a tendency to treat it as an independent science, concerned with investigating the phenomena of art and its place in human life. Yet, what in a field with a hazy line in between being classified as a science or study of beliefs is considered data for determining what can be studied....   [tags: essays papers] 1442 words

Unlike most film, the message is almost entirely told by just the eyes and expressions of the actors. There is very little reliance upon props and background. The camera angles and close-up shooting accentuate emotions and reactions.

Appeal to Aesthetics in Death in Venice - In the late 19th century decadence was a tremendously popular theme in European literature. In addition, the degeneracy of the individual and society at large was represented in numerous contemporary works by Mann. In Death in Venice, the theme of decadence caused by aestheticism appears through Gustav von Achenbach’s eccentric, specifically homoerotic, feelings towards a Polish boy named Tadzio. Although his feelings spring from a sound source, the boy’s aesthetic beauty, Aschenbach becomes decadent in how excessively zealous his feelings are, and his obsession ultimately leads to his literal and existential destruction....   [tags: Literary Analysis ]

Free Essays on Invisible Man: Aesthetics of Invisible Man - Aesthetics of Invisible Man   Ralph Ellison painstakingly crafted a separate world in Invisible Man , a novel that succeeds because it is an intricate aesthetic creation -- humane, compassionate, and yet gloriously devoid of a moral. Social comment is neither the aim nor the drive of art, and Ellison did not attempt to document a plight. He created a place where race is reflected and distorted, where pithy generalities are dismissed, where personal and aesthetic prisms distill into an individualized, articulate consciousness -- it is impossible, not to mention foolish and simplistic, to attempt to exhort a moral from the specific circumstances of the narrator, who is not a cardboard martyr and who doesn't stand for anyone other than himself: he does not represent the Everyman, nor does he epitomize thesufferings of his race....   [tags: Invisible Man Essays] 1171 words

Accordingly, the "Deduction of Judgments of Taste" (KU, § 38) aims to show how reflective aesthetic judgments can be "imputed" a priori to all human subjects. The Deduction is not successful: Kant manages only to justify the imputation of the same form of aesthetic experience to everyone; he does not show that this experience will universally occur in response to the same objects....   [tags: Philosophy]

The Moral Importance of the Beautiful in Kant - The Moral Importance of the Beautiful in Kant I argue for an interpretation of Kant's aesthetics whereby the experience of the beautiful plays the same functional role in the invisible church of natural religion as Scripture does for the visible churches of ecclesiastical religions. Thus, I contend, the links that Kant himself implies between the aesthetic and the moral (in the third Critique and the Religion) are much stronger than generally portrayed by commentators. Indeed, for Kant, experience of the beautiful may be necessary in order to found what Kant views as the final end of morality — the ethical community — since human moral psychology requires embodiments of moral ideas....   [tags: Argumentative Ethics Aesthetic Papers]

Adoro's Aesthetic Theory - Art can be interpreted in varying ways. One could take the Kantian approach by placing special importance on art’s autonomy, while proclaiming that art prescribes to its own set of self-created maxims. These maxims facilitate the creation of normative idea of art, where excellent is determined by how well it meets arts self-created maxims. Therefore the Mona Lisa is only a good painting because it greatly conforms to the maxims of the art normative. Another approach would be the Hegelian interpretation that states that art is the “highest human vocation.” In this way art shows humanity normative of human existence in a way that shows the worthiness of human society....   [tags: Sociology ]

Aesthetic Plastic Surgery: The Medicalization of Appearance - ... Since first impressions are not only action based but also deal with physical traits, some people feel as if their life and money depends on their image especially since “psychological science has taught us that a more attractive individual is likely to receive better judgment and treatment” (Neto and Caponi 7). In addition to that, there is even evidence that cosmetic plastic surgery increases peoples favor towards others.

Aesthetic Experience and Verbal Art - Aesthetic Experience and Verbal Art It is a common assumption that there is an art which can be defined as literary or verbal. Yet, this definition relies mainly on linguistic criteria. Can literary art also be accounted for philosophically. In this paper I intend to offer such an account. Starting from the Hegelian conception of language and of the aesthetic experience, I shall argue that literary, and more specifically poetic, discourse can be defined as the verbal completion of an aesthetic experience, and that this distinctive feature marks off literary discourse from other types of discourse such as scientific and philosophical discourse....   [tags: Argumentative Philosophy Argument Papers] 3963 words

The Aesthetic Pedagogy of Francis of Assisi - The Aesthetic Pedagogy of Francis of Assisi ABSTRACT: Despite his anti-intellectualism, Francis of Assisi was an effective teacher who intentionally illustrated the life of virtue in his own way of living.

What was once seen as treatment for individuals in dire need is now evolving into a marketable service rendered to those with the means to obtain it.

Aesthetic Quality in "The Design" by Robert Frost - Aesthetic quality is the most important characteristic of a poem. Poetry is an art form, and as painters use colours and techniques to define their works, a poet uses language. Symbolism, metaphors, and knowledge of past works, are the ingredients in which all forms of art are comprised. No matter what form art chooses it will leave a lasting impression on those considering it. In the case of the poet, the author must paint a picture in our minds, with the intention that we may question, remember, and appreciate, the beauty of what the poem is trying to say....   [tags: American Literature] 1067 words

The Importance of Aesthetic Distance in American Horror Movies - The Importance of Aesthetic Distance in American Horror Movies What then do we make of American horror movies. In the canon of horror pictures they almost always come second in respect to foreign horror movies and any American horror film that is considered to be artful is the one with the most aesthetic distance. Upscale slashers like Johnathan Demme's The Silence of the Lambs (1991) or David Fincher's Seven (1995) are both gruesome and bloody borrowing many of the same shock techniques as their lower budget counterparts (for example, Russell Mulchahy's Sevenish thriller Resurrection (1999)), both focus on the body and its violation, either through sexual means or violent means, and both feature villains who fit easily into Carol Clover's assessment as "distinctly male; his fury is unmistakably sexual in both roots and expression." The logic behind heaping plaudits on the upscale slashers and highbrow horror pictures lies, as with foreign horror, with the concept of aesthetic distance....   [tags: Movie Film Essays] 666 words
