Aesthetic experience which is argued by Eaton is marked by perception of and reflection upon intrinsic properties of objects and events that a community considers worthy of attention. Eaton states that if our goal really is creating and maintaining sustainable environments, then the thinking must be given priority in our appreciation. Success in making and preserving environmentally maintainable environments depends on designers’ and maintainers’ abilities to understand and represent in environments those things that will keep the community’s visual attention and interest. Pretty much here he is saying that people are only going to want to help and save/maintain nature that they feel aesthetically beautiful.
