The Nature of Aesthetic Experience
Urania: The Muse of Astronomy and Philosophy

Marcia Eaton's Aesthetics of Art
Artis—Naples Lifelong Learning

In this series, we celebrate Urania, the Muse of Astronomy and Philosophy, by gazing into aesthetic realms.  Marcia Eaton will inspire and challenge participants to reflect on three interrelated topics.

The Nature of Aesthetic Experience: Interpreters and critics have produced aesthetic experiences in their audiences. But what is an aesthetic experience? How do we know when we are having one?

This presentation is part of Marcia Eaton's Aesthetics of Art lecture series.
