Skillnader mellan konstverk, kopior av konstverk, och icke-estetiska objekt : Estetisk uppskattning och kognitiv penetration (Swedish)
Abstract [en]

In this essay, I argue that knowledge that an object of art is a copy or an ordinary object affects one’s aesthetic appreciation of that work of art, and that the difference between art object and non-art object is aesthetic. This statement is supported by the conclusion that works of art are constituted of both perceptual and non-perceptual properties. Moreover, I argue that non-perceptual properties can define the difference between an object of art, a copy of an object of art, and an ordinary object. Therefore, possessing knowledge about those non-perceptual properties will make one perceive the object differently since what one directs one’s attention towards becomes salient. Thus, possessing knowledge about the non-perceptual properties of an art object affects one’s aesthetic appreciation of that object.
