In this volume, a team of internationally respected contributors theorize the concept of aesthetic experience and its value. Exposing and expanding our restricted cultural and intellectual presuppositions of what constitutes aesthetic experience, the book aims to re-explore and affirm the place of aesthetic experience--in its evaluative, phenomenological and transformational sense--not only in relation to art and artists but to our inner and spiritual lives.

Richard Schusterman is Professor and Chair of Philosophy at Temple University, USA. Adele Tomlin is Graduate Tutor at Kings College London and Visiting Lecturer at the University of Hertfordshire, UK.
