Approaches and methods developed in the fields of art theory and cultural studies have, over time, come increasingly to influence the archaeological disciplines. While iconology, hermeneutics, and semiotics are widely accepted in Egyptology, approaches focusing on the reception of works of art and also on their aesthetic effect are viewed with scepticism by many in the field. However, some of them involve questions that may prove fruitful or inspiring for the Egyptological field. For example ‘reception aesthetics,’ which proceeds on the assumption that the person of the viewer is an integral part of each work of art, and that the relationship between producer, work, and viewer is an act of communication. Another example is neuroaesthetics, which researches the structures and activities of the brain linked to aesthetic sensation. In addition, some in this field assume that there is a universal, human code of beauty, which is susceptible to decipherment. Such research may contribute to a better understanding of the underpinnings of aesthetical feelings and values if pursued within a dialogue between the Natural Sciences and Humanities, particularly those of art history, art theory, and visual studies.
