Jane Forsey, who has already written a few significant articles in aesthetics, one published in the prestigious Journal of Aesthetics and Art Criticism, has embarked here on an excellent and much-needed project: to develop an aesthetics of design. Of course there already is a lot of work on the aesthetics of design, mainly written by design professionals. As Forsey observes, philosophical aesthetics has virtually ignored design.
Here Forsey adapts the Kantian notion of dependent beauty to provide a model for our appreciation of design as different from our judgements of art, craft and natural beauty.
Aesthetic theory has traditionally occupied itself with fine art in all its forms, sometimes with craft, and often with notions of beauty and sublimity in art and nature. In so doing, it has largely ignored the quotidian and familiar objects and experiences that make up our daily lives. Here Forsey adapts the Kantian notion of dependent beauty to provide a model for our appreciation of design as different from our judgements of art, craft and natural beauty. Finally, design is important for aesthetics and philosophy as a whole in that it is implicated in broader human concerns.
Philosophy of design is the study of definitions of design, and the assumptions, foundations, and implications of design. The field, which is mostly a sub-discipline of aesthetics, is defined by an interest in a set of problems, or an interest in central or foundational concerns in design. In addition to these central problems for design as a whole, many philosophers of design consider these problems as they apply to particular disciplines (.

Therefore, my thoughts about Jane Forsey's book, The Aesthetics of Design, will relate more closely to design studies than to the philosophy of aesthetics, although in this brief essay I will say something about both. To begin, I should state that The Aesthetics of Design is a welcome addition to the design studies literature, even though Forsey has directed it to aestheticians whom she would like to take design more seriously
