Developing an "Aesthetic Emotions Scale" (AESTHEMOS)

A theoretical construct of "Aesthetic Emotions" is useful for empirical research only to the extent that methods for measuring actually felt aesthetic emotions are developed. The project undertakes this effort: it develops highly nuanced scales for self-report measures of aesthetic emotions, and validates these scales both by a variety of statistical means and by multiple field studies.
