Summary
"The following Lectures were written with a desire to supply the want of an exclusive and compact treatise on the principles of taste. Though the literature of this subject is voluminous, there is no work which gives itself singly to a systematic statement of the nature of beauty, and of its primary and fundamental laws. Karnes's Elements of Criticism, so long used in academic and collegiate instruction, contains matter which belongs to several distinct departments, and is not a complete or thorough presentation of the subject of taste, for which it has been chiefly relied on. So many principles have been established in the department of beauty, so much of the mind's action in this direction is understood, as to entitle the subject to distinct consideration; and, at the risk of some offence, we have ventured to style our work Æsthetics; or, The Science of Beauty. It has been our aim to combine and present in a systematic form those facts and principles which constitute the department of taste, and, as far as may be, to make good its claim to the rank of a distinct science. In so doing, we have striven to render a service to the general reader, and yet more to this branch of instruction"--Preface. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2010 APA, all rights reserved)
