Using the knowledge and methods of art theory, social and technological sciences, dissertation examines the problems of material environment aesthetic shape harmonisation by applying the principles of intuitive cognition. The research hypothesises that the material environment can be harmonized by integrating the principles of intuitive cognition into the aestetic shaping of an object. The dissertation aims to investigate the methods of aesthetic shape harmonisation based on intuitive cognition and to develop a method for their practical application.

The research addresses the following main tasks:

1. To analyse the scientific literature on intuitive cognitive research to reveal the problems arising in the harmonisation of an aesthetic shape in the field of design.

2. To establish universal methodical principles for shape modelling and distinguish evaluation criteria.

3. To establish the methods for analysis, modelling and evaluation of an aesthetic shape.

4. To substantiate the efficiency of an experimental model shape analysis, modelling and evaluation methods.

5. To review and interpret the results of experimental research and prepare methodical recommendations for the applied harmonisation of a shape.

The dissertation consists of an introduction, three chapters, general conclusions, a list of literature, a list of the author’s publications on the topic of the dissertation, and ten annexes.

The introductory chapter discusses the research problem, the relevance of the thesis, describes the object, formulates the aims and objectives, describes the research methodology, scientific novelty, the practical significance of results, states defended statements and author’s publications, and presents the dissertation structure. The first chapter explores research problem and analyses scientific. It identifies the essential concepts, analyses problems of intuitive cognition and evaluates related studies. The theoretical basis for the aesthetic shape intuitive cognition harmonisation is also formed. The second chapter presents the methodic of the shape analysis, modelling and evaluation. The third chapter experimentally investigates methods of shape harmonisation. Finally, the paper offers conclusions and practical application recommendations based on experimental research results. The general conclusions present research findings substantiate the possibilities to integrate intuitive cognition principles into the aesthetic shaping of an object, introduce shape analysis methods, and the applicability of harmonisation tools.
