Example text

By contrast, Perrault’s conception of âpreté or “visual tension” appears only once in the book, but in a way that underscores how well Laugier understood Perrault’s interpretation of this word. 18 The rendering of Laugier’s term âpreté here as “picturesque vista” by the translator Wolfgang Herrman, I think, comes very close to the visual–physiological sense of the word intended by Perrault. It was also a concept that – now that it had been reintroduced into architectural theory – would soon be developed in a still more interesting way.

The summary principle of Burke’s psycho-physiological aesthetics, which is still quite valid, is that human emotions arise out of the corporeal or neurological processing of perceptions. Picturesque Theory The idea of the picturesque, as it would be employed in British landscape theory in the late eighteenth-century, is another idea with a lengthy European pedigree. In England, William Temple, John Soane, the Earl of Shaftesbury, and Joseph Addison all spoke of the beauty of 46 Historical Essays irregular gardens early in the century without specifically invoking the word.

7 One of Burke’s goals is to raise the idea of the “sublime” as an aesthetic category equal to and alongside that of beauty. ”8 Burke’s initial concern is with the emotions or passions produced by the brain in our experiences with the world, and thus the first part of his study is largely psychological. ”9 Burke is not talking about real pain or danger, but the hint of such when we come across sensory experiences that shock us out of our day-to-day tedium, the exercise of which, he argues, is necessary to the health of our biological system.
