    Mathematics and Geometry Towards Ideality in «Domus»’s Ideal Houses.Simona Chiodo - 2017 - Lebenswelt: Aesthetics and Philosophy of Experience 11:90-124.
    Between 1942 and 1943 the editor of the journal «Domus» invited the most important Italian architects to design their ideal houses: fifteen projects designed by seventeen architects were published. They are most instructive to try to understand, firstly, what the philosophical notion of ideal means and, secondly, why mathematical and geometric tools are extensively used to work on ideality, namely, to design ideal houses. The first part of the article focuses on the philosophical foundations of ideality and, after an overview (...)

  3. La Prospettiva Scientifica.Franco Ghione - 2017 - Lebenswelt: Aesthetics and Philosophy of Experience 11:61-89.
    In this article we expose the Euclidean theory of vision and, in particular, those theorems that deal with prospective representation. Our aim is to show how the central perspective was known in the Hellenistic era both from a theoretical and practical point of view as evidenced by the analysis of some imperial period frescoes found in Rome. In the second part of this article we look at the Euclidean perspective theorems, using the Cartesian coordinates and the limit idea.

  4. From Symbols to Written Landscapes. The Role of Astronomy in Ancient Egyptian Architecture.Giulio Magli - 2017 - Lebenswelt: Aesthetics and Philosophy of Experience 11:125-133.
    Architecture of ancient Egypt is criss-crossed by a series of giant projects whose aim was to celebrate the divine nature of the Pharaohs and their rights to eternal afterlife. In many of such projects a complex interplay between idealization of symbols in hieroglyph writings and shaping of built objects and cultural landscapes can be seen. Since the afterlife destination of the Pharaohs was in the sky, astronomy plays a relevant role in understanding this interplay, as it occurs, in particular, in (...)

  5. Golden Ratio Beauty as Scientific Function.Scott A. Olsen - 2017 - Lebenswelt: Aesthetics and Philosophy of Experience 11:46-60.
    Normally when one is considering the golden ratio in the history of ideas, one is often looking at it as an aesthetic principle – usually associated with Greek art, sculpture and mathematics. However, in recent years the prevalence of the golden ratio within a broad range of scientific disciplines has brought its role in the perfection of science to the forefront. I would like to collapse these two areas by proposing a somewhat novel way of looking at the aesthetics of (...)

  7. La Bellezza Nel Segno Del Rifiuto.Reinhard Brandt - 2017 - Lebenswelt: Aesthetics and Philosophy of Experience 10:1-13.
    Beauty and its refusal are not merely a cipher of contemporaneity but a topic discussed since antiquity. The rivalry between lyre and flute, between harmony, mathematically determinable, and melody, gatherable only by hearing, arises from the myth, from the fight between Apollo and Marsia, where Greece and Phrygia, Europe and Asia are opposed in a civilisations collision. In modernity this collision arose again as political, whereas the egalitarian melody is opposed to the elitist harmony. Into this collision we find fine (...)

  8. Marco Praga E Tatiana Pavlova: Due Mondi Teatrali a Confronto.Mariagabriella Cambiaghi - 2017 - Lebenswelt: Aesthetics and Philosophy of Experience 10:36-52.
    In the twenties the playwright and stage director Marco Praga became a dramatic critic on the “Illustrazione italiana”. In his incisive production an interesting section is devoted to Tatiana Pavlova, a Russian actress who started performing in Italy in 1923, and gradually introduced a new concept of acting and show.Referring to reviews and pictures, this article investigates two different points of view about theatre, the relationship between text and stage, performance and further components of the show.

  10. La Percezione Estetica in Circolo. Quando le Scienze Cognitive Incontrano L'Ermeneutica.Gianluca Consoli - 2017 - Lebenswelt: Aesthetics and Philosophy of Experience 10:69-80.
    The so-called ‘neuro-psychological approach’ to aesthetics studies aesthetic perception and evaluation in neural, psychological, and social terms. All the empirical results recently collected by this approach are in line with the notion of ‘hermeneutic circle’. In particular, they suggest that aesthetic perception involves a special and original integration and coordination of low-level and high-level processing dynamics, top-down control and bottom-up construction of stimuli, and immediate and extensive evaluative processes.

  11. Normatività E Creazione: I Giudizi di Gusto in Kant.Gianluigi Dallarda - 2017 - Lebenswelt: Aesthetics and Philosophy of Experience 10:14-35.
    This paper investigates some of the main problems concerning the normativity of aesthetic judgments in Kant’s Critique of Judgment. Kant’s attempt to provide a transcendental foundation to aesthetic judgments clashes with the impossibility to find a determined conceptual rule under which they could be subsumed. This paper aims to discuss and clarify the set of problems derived from this attempt, focusing especially on the artistic perspective. In order to do that, it will be necessary to deal with the following notions: (...)

  15. "Spasimi d'Ira, Spasimi D'Amore". Le Atmosfere Nell'opera Lirica.Federica Scassillo - 2017 - Lebenswelt: Aesthetics and Philosophy of Experience 10:53-68.
    Nowadays, atmospheres are a frequent topic in the philosophy of music. However, ‘music’ is frequently understood with a generical meaning. On the contrary, this paper aims to apply the theory of atmospheres in a defined musical genre: the Italian Opera. Opera is grounded on three expressive elements – music, libretto and stage. For this reason, it is reductive to talk only about the relationship between music and atmospheres. The studies about Opera has often treated separately its three expressive levels; the (...)
