Description

The purpose of this book is to look for a richer means of communication in the classroom than the almost exclusive use of discursive language. It specifically focuses on the teaching of aesthetic appreciations, and offers presentational symbolism as a complement to discursive language. Part I locates some key descriptions and definitions of various kinds of language in the works of Huyghe, Langer, Wheelwright and Denton. It also stresses the limitations of discursive language and then focuses on the inability of discursive language to communicate appreciative feelings. Part II offers a semiological approach to presentational symbolism, studies the key elements of the language of images, treats the relationship between images and discursive language, considers the relationship between music, images and verbal language, and focuses on the correspondences between various art forms.
