This book, a collection of newly commissioned essays by leading
environmental philosophers, was originally to be published by Seven
Bridges, a small scholarly press started by former editors at
Stanford University Press. Seven Bridges is folding due to poor
financing, and this book is now available. It is already in pages,
with a cover design, and each chapter has been double-blind
peer-reviewed and revised. Andrew Light is a professor of applied
philosophy at NYU and a possible editor for a series in
The aesthetics of everyday life, originally developed by Henri
Lefebvre and other modernist theorists, is an extension of
traditional aesthetics, usually confined to works of art. It is not
limited to the study of humble objects but is rather concerned with
all of the undeniably aesthetic experiences that arise when one
contemplates objects or performs acts that are outside the
traditional realm of aesthetics. It is concerned with the nature of
the relationship between subject and object.
One significant aspect of everyday aesthetics is environmental
aesthetics, whether constructed, as a building, or manipulated, as
a landscape. Others, also discussed in the book, include sport,
weather, smell and taste, and food.
