This Special Issue features a selection of papers presented at the 2023 Neuroaesthetics Conference, Universality of Aesthetic Experience in Individual Contexts, organised jointly by the University of Suceava, NTNU (Norwegian University of Science and Technology), and the University of Bergen, and hosted by the University of Suceava’s Neuroaesthetics Lab with funding from the Norwegian Financial Mechanism 2014–2021—Norway Grants, the PoeticA project (RO-NO-2019-0091). While solidly grounded in quantitative, data-based research, our approach to neuroaesthetics emphasises the importance of opening the field to researchers from humanities backgrounds and artists whose work provides empirical frameworks for introspective qualitative interpretations. In keeping with the desiderate of exploring aesthetics both ‘from below’ (i.e., using quantitative methods) and ‘from above’ (i.e., using qualitative methods), advocated by the German experimental psychologist and philosopher, Theodor Fechner, we invite you to explore our article selection that, we hope, provides both scientific exploration of measurable dimensions of aesthetic experience and introspective depth.
