#easternculture #care #aesthetics

A highly-enjoyable introductory book on everyday aesthetics that uses familiar examples to show how aesthetics can enrich our engagement with the world, body and mind.

Building upon her previous work on everyday aesthetics, Yuriko Saito argues in this book that the aesthetic and ethical concerns are intimately connected in our everyday life. Specifically, she shows how aesthetic experience embodies a care relationship with the world and how the ethical relationship with others, whether humans, non-human creatures, environments, or artifacts, is guided by aesthetic sensibility and manifested through aesthetic means.
