What is outside of the given object of art- is meant, suggested, or recalled by it- belongs, it is said, to absolutely unaesthetic processes, as is shown by the fact that many things, which we are the first to acknowledge as ugly, are the exciting cause of great thoughts and delightful associations.- "The Psychology of Beauty", Ethel D. Puffer.
No one will deny that the full aesthetic experience cannot be dismissed with the treatment of formal beauty; and, although Professor Santayana's " beauty in the second term" may be rejected as a pure individual, arbitrary, interested, and hence unaesthetic element, the explicit content of a work of art cannot be ignored.- "The Psychology of Beauty", Ethel D. Puffer.
