Summary

Barrow (astronomy, U. of Sussex) explores the close ties between aesthetic appreciation and the basic nature of the universe, arguing that our likes in language, music, painting, and architecture have their source in the scientific principles of the natural world. He explains how the landscape of the universe has influenced the development of philosophy and mythology, and shows how human evolution has fashioned our attraction to certain patterns of sound and color. Includes bandw and color photos. For interested general readers. Annotation copyright by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
