Department od Education, NTNU
This study presents a critical analysis of Yuan-Pei Tsai's theory of aesthetic education. Historical approach and theoretical analysis are used to thoroughly investigate the following aspects of Tsai's doctrine of aesthetic education: Firstly of all, a biographical remark is exposed in order to depict the historical background of Tsai's theory of aesthetic education.
