This anthology deals with the changing state of the arts and the incorporation and relevance of the aesthetic dimension in daily life in general. The articles are not restricted to the arts, but emphasis is given to aesthetics at work including art interaction, new aesthetical forms, new aesthetical activities, media and expressions including aesthetical dimensions in current economical and technological development - all the aesthetical tendencies that contribute to our world today. The book represents a decisive development in existing theories of art, taking a serious look at the expanding field of aesthetics. The contributors represent aesthetic studies, musicology, art history, literature, and media. Together they have published widely within the aesthetics field and they all take part in the development of an aesthetics program at the University of Oslo.
