Intrinsic Nature of Aesthetics and Design and its Universality

Uploaded by :

This essay discusses "The Art of Collecting Lightbulbs" by Michael Kimmelman, "The Boundaries of Design" by Virginia Postrel and "False Identifications: Minority Populations Mourn Diana" by Diana Taylor and argues that the common feature between the authors is their view that aesthetic interests are universal and affect perspectives on reality and what objects have value. Five pages in length, three sources are cited.
