Access options available:. Philosophy and Literature The intellectual climate of postmodernism has not been particularly encouraging for the development of an evolutionary theory of the arts. Concentrated in constructionist modes of analysis and interpretation for the past thirty years, the social sciences and humanities have asserted that aesthetic objects and practices are produced and regulated by social and cultural structures, and serve overwhelmingly to reinforce those structures. In its most extreme form, postmodern constructionism claims that all meaning or significance derives from social and cultural factors, and that perceived truth is a matter of agreement or a function of power. If, for instance, we like Edward Weston's photographs and Georgia O'Keefe's paintings because we observe striking similarities between the organic forms represented in them and features of the human form, postmodernism counsels us that our preferences are dictated by social and cultural regulators, such as current discourses about nature and art, and not in any way by predisposed attractions to types of natural objects or to the relationships between them.
A Critical Theory of Creativity pp Cite as. Unlike the Ephretans and the Harmonists, these communities continue today. The chapter focuses, however, not on their modernity but on their craft, creativity and aesthetics. In both cases, we will observe how design has a cultural importance beyond both the practical function and the economic utility of the textiles they produce. Textile production and design provides a useful focus because of its status as a craft with cultural resonance, and as one that incorporates both functional and aesthetic considerations. It is globally practised but with local characteristics, and is conceptually simple but with great capacity for complication. It has the final advantage of a metaphorical significance, which will become apparent as these chapters continue.

Ellen Dissanayake [ pronunciation? Dissanayake's birth name was Ellen Franzen; she was born in Illinois and raised in Walla Walla, Washington, where her father was an engineer and her mother a homemaker. She received a B. In her book Homo Aestheticus: Where Art Comes From and Why first printed in , Dissanayake argues that art was central to the emergence, adaptation and survival of the human species, that aesthetic ability is innate in every human being, and that art is a need as fundamental to our species as food, warmth or shelter. She views art as the product of "making things special", and these things may be objects as well as behaviors. That is to say, art evolved to make certain events, tentatively important for survival or social cohesion, more salient, pleasurable, and memorable. Artifacts of art are also said to result from efforts to deal with uncertainties of nature by exerting control over it.

Беккер посмотрел на нее внимательнее. К ней как-то не шло сквернословие - как неуместны сточные воды в хрустальном графине. Но, приглядевшись, он убедился, что она вовсе не такая изысканная особа, как ему показалось вначале. Веки припухли, глаза красные, левая рука у локтя - вся в кровоподтеках с синеватым отливом.
