ECO TRAVELS IN HYPERREALITY PDF

An early description of the way contemporary culture is now full of re-creations and themed environments was provided by Umberto Eco. In a brilliant essay, Eco saw that we create these realistic fabrications in an effort to come up with something that is better than real -- a description that is true of virtually all fiction and culture, which gives us things that are more exciting, more beautiful, more inspiring, more terrifying, and generally more interesting than what we encounter in everyday life. In his description of Disney, Eco also saw that behind the facades lurks a sales pitch. Put these ideas together and you have a succinct characterization of the age, which is forever offering us something that seems better than real in order to sell us something.

Many of the essays are devoted to the sortsof topics aestheticians have discussed over the past years, and the author seems to owe much to such writers as Frank Sibley and Morris Weitz. Apparently, some recent aestheticians George Dickie? But, more in the spirit of Weitz, Khatchadourian refuses to be so permissive. Like Weitz, he suggests that an object should be considered art if it has a sufficient number of characteristics in common with recognized paradigm cases of artworks.
