In fields like medicine and mathematics, applied aesthetics are used to translate English language terms through other languages with the use of form. For example, Starkman focuses on Snowden’s somewhat unpopular (at least at Bard) rejection of sousveillance as a response to surveillance.

I didn't know then what I was to learn from Eli Siegel: the reason I was moved by this man from Galilee was that he put together opposites, like gentleness and strength, humility and pride; opposites I hoped to put together in myself but which were often painfully apart. This has to do with the amount of sugar or phenolic compounds in the wine that make it seem heavy or light.

The orthodox view is that, really, there is not much of a problem here. In matters of value, Kant's Copernican reversal does not go as far and is not as consistent as with theoretical knowledge. It is not Modernism, Post-Modernism, Classical or Colonial. Sure, we could do without the retail bedlam and trampling, without the shadow of consumption and corporate rule by proxy, and all the other very real defects of Black Friday.

All three factors are present in any design and no real building can exist without all three factors present in some manner. This is how studying philosophy can help. We base our understanding of the world on what we can perceive with our senses and comprehend with our minds.

Taken together, their essays constitute a sustained and multifarious effort to resituate aesthetic pleasure in the mixed, impure conditions characteristic of every social practice and experience, however privileged or marginalized, and to ask what happens to the aesthetic if we consider it apart from-or at least in tension with-its historically dominant discursive formulations.
