Example text

Remember that some experiences that may be called aesthetic may not require aesthetic attention. All I claimed was that those paradigmatic cases of aesthetic experience I zeroed in on at the beginning of the chapter do. But maybe I am too concessive. It could be argued that when we are captivated by the color of the turban, we may very well be distributing our attention among a number of properties. The turban has various shades, and part of what the observer may describe as being mesmerized by the color may in fact consist of attending to how the shade changes across the surface: how it is lighter on the left and slightly darker on the right, how it is the lightest just above the forehead, etc.

If you read this sentence it would give you a pretty good approximation of the bridge’s exact shade of color, as long as you have encountered tomatoes, cherries and fire engines. And I can give you a snapshot of the bridge in morning light when its color OUP CORRECTED PROOF – FINAL, 27/11/2015, SPi PICTURES  looks very unusual. Or I may just give you a black and white photo. In this case, the sentence will give you more specific information about the color than the picture. So nothing about the nature of these two different kinds of representation guarantees that the way sentences represent is impoverished, whereas the way pictures represent is rich in details.

I could give you a much more complex sentence about the color of the Golden Gate Bridge, comparing it to the color of tomatoes, cherries, fire engines and so on. If you read this sentence it would give you a pretty good approximation of the bridge’s exact shade of color, as long as you have encountered tomatoes, cherries and fire engines.
