Carsten Strathausen's exploration of bioaesthetics is the first comprehensive account of its ideas, as well as a timely critique of its limitations. He familiarizes readers with the basics of bioaesthetics, grounding them in its philosophical underpinnings while articulating its key components and highlighting the longstanding problem of the "two cultures" that separate the arts and the sciences.
