The author examines San Aesthetics: The Enhancement of Life in a Foraging Society, Inuit Aesthetics: Art as Transformer of Realities, Aboriginal Australian Aesthetics: Sacramental Union with the Eternal Dreamtime, Aesthetics of the Sepik: Powerful Spirits and Phallic Aggression in New Guinea, Navajo Aesthetics: A Unity of Art and Life, Yoruba Aesthetics: Goodness and Beauty in West Africa, Aztec Aesthetics: Flower and Song, Aesthetics in Early India: “Rasa” and the Theory of Transcendental Enjoyment, Japanese Aesthetics: An Exultation of Beauty and Bliss, Western Aesthetics: A Quartet of Traditions, Comparative Aesthetics: The Many Faces of the Muse, Art as Culturally Significant Meaning, Style, Feeling, and Skill and Western Aesthetics in Cross-cultural perspective.
