Accepting the opportunity I presented my latest work on aesthetic science entitled “Aesthetic science: towards a naturalized model of aesthetics”. My main endeavor there was to propose realistic organizational requirements towards a naturalized explanation of aesthetics. Approaching the problem from within the living system I seek for the minimal process relationships that are required for the emergence, from primitive to higher levels, of aesthetic behavior.
Great conference, great atmosphere, great people.
Many thanks to the amazing organizers.
