E‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‌‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‍‍‌‍‍ssay Topic/Prompt: What are aesthetic properties according to Sibley (Chapter 11)? What kind of unity, if any, is there among them? Consider his examples in some detail. Do you think all of them are still mentioned in our contemporary aesthetic discourse? Are some of them dated? Which ones, and why do you think so? Try suggest other aesthetic properties that express our contemporary interests. The essay must include this information: Sibley’s list of aesthetic (or taste) concepts: ? * Aesthetic adjectives: “unified, balanced, integrated, lifeless, serene, somber, dynamic, powerful, vivid, delicate, moving, trite, sentimental tragic” (121). These have aesthetic uses, but also non-aesthetic ones. ? * Expressions in artistic contexts: “telli‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‌‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‍‍‌‍‍ng contrast, sets up a tension, conveys a sense of, or holds it together” (ibid.). ? * Other adjectives function “only or predominantly as aesthetic terms:” “graceful, delicate, dainty, handsome, comely, elegant, garish” (121-122). ? * „[W]ords which are seldom used as aesthetic terms at all:” “red, noisy, brackish, clammy, square, docile, curved, evanescent, intelligent, faithful, derelict, tardy, freakish” (122). ? The only source that needs to be included is: Peter Lamarque & Stein Haugom Olsen (ed.), Aesthetics and the Philosophy of Art: An Analytic Tradition2nd Ed. (Blackwell 2019) Which I have uploaded a copy of the above text to my files. Only need to include information from Chapter 11 on aesthetic propertie‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‌‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‍‍‌‍‍s according to Sibley. Thank you!
