1. Ausperk, Ryan. Phenomenology, Imagination, and Aesthetic Experience.

Degree: MA, College of Arts and Sciences / Department of Philosophy, 2014, Kent State University

The objective of this thesis is to give a phenomenological account of the relationship between imagination and aesthetic experience. To begin, I give a preliminary sketch of some monumental figures in the area of aesthetics that have influenced phenomenological reflection on art. I then use the philosophy of Mikel Dufrenne to provide the basis of a phenomenological aesthetics, emphasizing the distinction between the work of art and the aesthetic object as well as providing an account of the structure of aesthetic experience. I then turn to Edward Casey's analysis of imagination to argue that the relationship between aesthetic experience and imagination is mutually beneficial. Finally, I apply this line of reasoning to the art of photography to give an example of the reciprocal relationship between imagination and aesthetic experience. Advisors/Committee Members: Zavota, Gina (Advisor).
