The Beauty of Landscape


ISBN: 978-3-88405-783-4

Price: €9.80 (including 19 % tax)


Unlike land itself, a landscape is a construction of the human mind, a creation of human thought and imagination by means of which certain aspects of land are deemed salient and thereby given order, unity, and coherence. And, by this means, a landscape is also given beauty. In this sense the beauty of a landscape is a product of what might be called its composition. Thus, the question of the beauty of a landscape becomes a question about its composition. And, in light of this, what in general constitutes the beauty of a landscape depends upon the account of the processes by which it is composed. But what exactly is “landscape composition”? In this essay, I consider a number of traditional and modern theories of the aesthetic appreciation of natural and cultural environments in so far as they provide different accounts of landscape composition and thus of the nature of landscape beauty.
