Tavistock Press was established as a co-operative venture between the Tavistock Institute and Routledge & Kegan Paul (RKP) in the 1950s to produce a series of major contributions across the social sciences.
This volume is part of a 2001 reissue of a selection of those important works which have since gone out of print, or are difficult to locate. Published by Routledge, 112 volumes in total are being brought together under the name The International Behavioural and Social Sciences Library: Classics from the Tavistock Press.
Reproduced here in facsimile, this volume was originally published in 1961 and is available individually. The collection is also available in a number of themed mini-sets of between 5 and 13 volumes, or as a complete collection.

This set reprints a number of works by the much-acclaimed aesthete, critic, painter and poet. Adrian Stokes is celebrated for his work on the social aspect of aesthetics, and his proposition that a capacity to understand art is dependent on a capacity to understand human beings. Through the application of psycho-analytic concepts, his writings provide valuable insights into our own appreciation of creativity and culture. In the volumes reissued here a variety of issues are explored including landscape values, art as ritual, modern urban environment, contemporary and avant-garde painting.
