Ali Vakili Baladezaei, Hadi Samadi
Abstract:   (1010 Views)
Although Stephen Davies, the author of Artful Species, like other evolutionary aestheticians believes that aesthetic response and art behavior are rooted in evolution, it seems there is a conflict between some of his claims and evolutionary approaches. Particularly, Davies insists on the uniqueness of aesthetic inclinations and objectivity of aesthetic properties. He also disregards the evolutionary epistemology. In this article, we are going to show incompatibility in Davies views based on cases mentioned before.
Keywords: Stephen Davies, evolutionary aesthetics, evolutionary epistemology, the objectivity of aesthetic properties
