Our Book Is Out

Paths from the Philosophy of Art to Everyday Aesthetics which I co-edited with Oiva Kuisma and Harri Mäcklin has been published by the Finnish Society for Aesthetics. You can access and download the open access publication through HELDA repository.

"During the past few decades, everyday aesthetics has established itself as a new branch of philosophical aesthetics alongside the more traditional philosophy of art. The Paths from Philosophy of Art to Everyday Aesthetics explores the intimate relations between these two branches of contemporary aesthetics. The essays collected in this volume discuss a wide range of topics from aesthetic intimacy to the nature of modernity and the essence of everydayness, which play important roles both in the philosophy of art and everyday aesthetics. With these essays, the writers and editors of this volume wish to commemorate professor Arto Haapala on his 60th birthday.

This collection of articles is intended for scholars and students working in the fields of aesthetics, philosophy, and art studies."
