Experiencing art: in the brain of the beholder

Arthur Shimamura tackles art appreciation in his book “Experiencing art: in the brain of the beholder”

While I think Dr. Shimamura’s book would be of value to anyone interested in advancing the field of aesthetics, I found it particularly refreshing as someone with a background in the sciences. Too often we are confronted with a text that relies on outdated philosophical arguments and refuses to consider contributions outside of artistic circles. Experiencing Art is written in an approachable style, and it provides the science-inclined with a rational means of confronting, and ultimately, appreciating art.
