Product Description

Review

"The six principal papers are by a range of able and even distinguished exponents of their various specialisms"--John Nash," Interdisciplinary Science Reviews, 25, No.3 "

"Ramachandran and Hirstein [in the lead article] present a penetrating neurological theory comprising eight universal laws of aesthetic experience... Although these two neurologists are far from the first to respond to the challenge of explaining the human artistic experience, they bring a deeper viewpoint to bear, combining principles from perceptual psychology, evolutionary biology, neurological deficits and functional brain anatomy. Their treatment is unusual not so much in their development of perceptual rules for art, but in their use of these diverse principles to address the evolutionary meaning of beauty that may be the essence of art... Ramachandran and Hirstein state that their goal is to foster debate on the principles underlying the artistic experience. This they undoubtedly do, as exemplified by the Commentaries."--Christopher Tyler "Science "

This journal is so full of interesting essays and information I expect to be reading and re-reading it for years. Covers things like how art has evolved over centuries, how we perceive art and other visual information, also how the latest wisdom on neuroscience can inform or intersect with art. A brilliant read.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent summary of research on art and the brain 4 April 2000
By Bill G. - Published on Amazon.com
This issue of the Journal of Consciousness Studies offers a useful and illuminating collection of articles from major neuroscience researchers (including Ramachandran and Zeki) on how the architecture and organization of the brain influences our perception of art. Zeki's article formed the basis for his new book ("Inner Vision: An Explanation of Art and the Brain"), while Ramachandran obviously enjoys the opportunity to show off his erotic art collection! Highly recommended for anyone curious about how the brain constrains and channels our perceptions, and our appreciation of art.
