Science Without Aesthetics.
Hunsinger, Paul
Science and aesthetics are not separate disciplines but rather are, or should be, cohesive parts which only together form the best and proper approach to academic study. The humanistic study of the information sciences--with speech communication as the core--must unify its present emphasis on the scientific with greater concern for the aesthetic. In such studies consideration of the aesthetic stresses abstractions and illusions, time-bound and enduring values, and polymorphic forms of expression of these values and ideas. Aesthetic works and their modes of expression must be joined with scientific concerns in academic studies of communication and expression, since both pursuits are essentially communicative and expressive.
