 Knowing the aesthetics of a science plays a key role in deciphering its underlying cultural framework. This essay intends to provide insight into the aesthetics of haemophonomy by identifying its stylistic parallels with literature and the visual arts. An additional interest of this work is to serve as an example of a procedure for approaching the aesthetics of other sciences. The author focuses the aesthetics of science from a novel perspective. He conceives it from a neuralistic point of view, unbound from the compulsive search for a supposed ideal of beauty. Hence, this essay does not consider beauty, but rather aesthetic movements: those that have been found to be self-evidently significant and analytically productive in explaining The aesthetic of the science under examination. Some opinions on this essay: Very interesting – James A. Marcum (Baylor University) Thought-provoking – Susan D. Jones (University of Minnesota) Fascinating – Roald Hoffmann (1981 Nobel Prize in Chemistry, Cornell University).
