Introducing Aesthetics (Paperback)

A Graphic Guide

Christopher Kul-Want, Piero

Share this book

What is beauty, and what is truth? These are some of the questions which aesthetics tries to answer. In our everyday life, we talk about the ‘aesthetics’ of an artwork or a piece of design. But aesthetics goes beyond the simple experience of art. It is also a branch of philosophy concerned with the whole nature of experience itself, explored through our perceptions, feelings and emotions.

Christopher Kul-Want is Course Director of the MA in Fine Art at Byam Shaw School of Art, London. Piero is an illustrator, artist and graphic designer whose work has twice been included in the Royal College of Art in London. He has illustrated many Introducing titles.
