Philosophers from different regions of the world who had participated in
the IIP Annual Meeting on „Aesthetics in Contemporary Philosophy“ in
Tokyo, 2006, analysed and discussed questions trying to connect the
traditional aesthetic approaches with contemporary interpretation.
Starting from the outstanding paragon example of ancient Greek art we have
here comparative studies of experiencing and judging the beautiful and
artistic characteristics in different cultural traditions like the Far
East with its huge variety of traditions, roots and interactions between
the Buddhist and Chinese as well as the Japanese arts. Is there any common
essence or property which characterises an object or performance as
artistic or of high quality? What are the roots and characteristics of
artistic processes and creativity?
