Author. Fine in Very Good+ jacket. 8vo-over 7¾"-9¾" tall. Fine copy, dj has rubbing, minor edgewear with nicks. Probable 1st-not other dates of printing noted. The author, himself a scientist and artist, considers art as a communication phenomenon, and suggests that science and art have a more fundamental relationship than merely their shared roots in the human creative process. They interact: science pre-supposes art, requiring its creative insights and novel structures as antecedents to scientific theory; art in turn feeds partly on science and technolgoy. Mueller investigates the various arts to see how they contribute to new mental structures and enlarging human perceptions. Pen and ink graphics by the author. 352pp. Desirable!
