Everyday Aesthetics

Yuriko Saito

Yuriko Saito presents a ground-breaking book on aspects of our everyday experience that have been neglected by modern Western aesthetic theories. By analyzing a wide range of examples from our aesthetic interactions with nature, the environment, everyday objects, and Japanese culture, she not only shows how exploring everyday aesthetics can enrich the content of our aesthetic discourse, but also reveals the surprisingly powerful influence that our everyday aesthetic tastes and judgments exert on the state of the world and our quality of life.
