Abstract

Our everyday lives are full of aesthetic experiences. We wake up and frown at an overcast sky, or smile at the sight of the sun. Myriad decisions depend on the aesthetic appeal of the available options like which shirt to wear, which route to take to work, or where to eat. Even life-changing decisions, like where to live or who to live with, are partly based on their aesthetic appeal. Brielmann and Pelli introduce the field of empirical aesthetics, its history, and current research findings.
