Journal Title:Journal of Environmental Psychology
Author(s):Hull, R B; Revell, G.R. G

Pages:177-91
Annotation:Finding more similarities than differences when comparing the aesthetic evaluations of natives and tourists in Bali regarding rural landscapes, Hull and Revell conclude that assessments of scenic beauty ultimately transcend cultural differences. They also identify three methodological issues necessary for undertaking a cross-cultural study of aesthetics: the participant’s purpose for evaluating a landscape; the participant’s familiarity with the landscape; and the appropriateness of the criteria used for comparison.
