Moles, Abraham André 1968. Information Theory and Esthetic Perception. Urbana, IL:University of Illinois Press

The first book to appear in English, translated from the French, about information aesthetics. Abraham Moles’ approach to this boldly rational view of aesthetics as process of information differs from that of Max Bense, the German originator of information aesthetics. Whereas Bense sets out to develop an aesthetics purely of the object, Moles keeps human perception at the center of aesthetics. This is in line with Alexander Baumgarten’s view of aesthetics basically one mode of cognition: sensory cognition.
