The sense of order

A Study in the Psychology of Decorative Art

The book examines the psychology of decorative design and the creation and function of formal orders in the visual arts.

The universal human impulse to seek order and rhythm in space and time can be seen in children's play and in poetry, dance, music and architecture, and its prevalence in our every activity calls for an explanation in terms of our biological heritage.
