HEALTH & AESTHETICS
Otto Rank, one of the pioneers in Prenatal Psychology, has been teaching for almost 100 years now, that our life and Art are closely connected and that our health both somatic but also emotional are associated with our ability as human beings to see life as an Act of Art. And he wasn't the first of course. The majority of ancient classical philosophers in Greece and everywhere, as well as modern thinkers, speak of the value of the study of the Beautiful and the value of Aesthetics. At the same time, we have known since the era of Wundt that aesthetic pleasure is inherent in complexity. In this paper, we’ll attempt to show the connection between our Health and Fine Arts and see how Primordial Health Advancement Programs can greatly benefit from the integration of Fine Arts in their curriculum.
