'This book is a significant contribution to furthering our understanding about the importance and value of aesthetics within different art forms and contexts. It has cross-disciplinary appeal and helps to promote both theoretical development and applied research, while opening the study of aesthetics to a broader audience.' Paul M. Camic, Salomons Centre for Applied Psychology, Canterbury Christ Church University, Kent'This volume is impressive in both its breadth and depth. I work in this area, yet I learned something from each and every chapter about the psychology of aesthetics and art, and - perhaps more importantly - how aesthetics and art contribute to the human condition. This book will be kept on my desk so I can have easy access to it!' Jonathan Plucker, Raymond Neag Professor of Education, University of Connecticut'This volume brings together important scholarship and groundbreaking methodological approaches for understanding the fundamental question of how and why art moves us. Although an individual's experience of art is inherently subjective, these collected essays draw on research in psychology and aesthetics to bring new insights to a topic that historically many scholars in the field had considered too indefinable to analyze or quantify.'
