Is it possible to take a natural science approach to art and uncover general laws of aesthetic experience, or is that taking reductionism too far?
From the Publisher:
This is a special issue of the JOURNAL OF CONSCIOUSNESS STUDIES (normally available only by annual subscription). It is being offered individually in response to great public interest. The keynote article is "The Science of Art" by V.S. Ramachandran and W. Hirstein. Ramachandran's provocative claim that all artistic experience an be reduced to eight scientific "laws based on the press and broadcasting media and been the subject of various review articles ART AND THE BRAIN also contains other articles, notably a fascinating study by psychologist Nicholas Humphrey of prehistoric cave art compared to the drawings of autistic child prodigies. Commentators on Humphrey's article include Daniel Dennett."
