About IAEA

The International Association of Empirical Aesthetics (IAEA) was founded as a union of psychologists who investigate the underlying factors that contribute to an aesthetic experience, as well as aesthetic behaviors, using scientific methods. Currently we have members in 20 countries. Although the majority of members are psychologists, our membership includes sociologists, musicologists, philosophers, and researchers who specialize in the study of painting, sculpture, literature, film, museum visitor behavior, and so forth.
