Environmental Values

From Theoretical to Applied Environmental Aesthetics: Academic Aesthetics Meets Real-World Demands

Yrjö Sepänmaa

Environmental Values 19 (2010): 393-405. doi: 10.3197/096327110X519899

ABSTRACT

I see two important turning points in environmental aesthetics. In a definitive article, 'Contemporary aesthetics and the neglect of natural beauty', R.W. Hepburn in 1966 laid out the field and its tasks; Harold Osborne demonstrated the problem of externality and its solution in his 1979 paper 'An intellectual crisis in aesthetics'. Within this framework, a dynamic and innovative field of research has developed and grown, the future of which lies in the interaction between theory and practice and co-operation between the various parties involved.
