 Aesthetics - Philosophy Dictionary of Arguments
 
Aesthetics: aesthetics is generally the doctrine of perception in the philosophical tradition. In the narrower sense it is the investigation of the question of why we find certain things beautiful or ugly. Here, historical changes as well as cultural differences are taken into account. In modernity, the question of the enlightenment effect and the social power of works of art has also become relevant. See also art, works of art, beauty, perception, society, autonomy, recognition.
