  1. Form und Funktion: Eine kritische Betrachtung zeitgenössischer Designästhetik.Julia-Constance Dissel - 2020 - Deutsche Zeitschrift für Philosophie 68 (3):410-424.
    This essay deals with the terms “form” and “function” as well as their relationship insofar as they are still used in philosophical and design-theory discourse to determine the aesthetic dimension of designed artefacts, especially of everyday objects, and often also to distinguish them from objects of art. I discuss whether our common understanding of these terms and their relationship is an appropriate instrument for such determinations. What is up for discussion here are not only conceptions of functional beauty with regard (...)

  • Saving ‘Disinterestedness’ in Environmental Aesthetics: A Defence Against Berleant.Damla Dönmez - 2016 - Estetika 53 (2):149-164.
    The old, historical concept of ‘disinterestedness’ has dominated the tradition of aesthetics for almost two centuries. In environmental aesthetics, a rather recent branch of aesthetics, some scholars such as Arnold Berleant have criticized disinterestedness, claiming that it is not a satisfactory criterion since it views the environment as an artwork. As an alternative, Berleant proposes a theory of the ‘aesthetics of engagement’. I claim that although his main intention is to introduce a comprehensive perception of nature, ‘appreciating nature as nature’, (...)
