Since time immemorial, art has always been a product of man’s emotional and intellectual connection with the world. The primary aim of art is to create a message that will either trigger an inexplicable consciousness within the spirits of its audience, or provoke wisdom among the minds of the curious persons. Owing to its deep-rooted role for man, art has long been explored in several manners, with some scholars pursuing the mere aspects of art, while some take on deep comparative examinations. However, the act of connecting ancient art to contemporary art is not, as easy as taking into account, the time both came into existence. More so, how current artists perceive the ancient art, and how it influences their current works. There is a more precise, more diverse approach in understanding how ancient art measure up to the contemporary ones.

Nonetheless, current artists have the obligation to appreciate ancient art, so as to develop the act of appreciating art works in the society, including the works of current artists.
Over the course of several months the meaning and understanding of aesthetics and its application to art have taken place as a means to expanding the mind of a budding aesthete. Multiple respected aesthetes have been discussed regarding their philosophical approach to art and the theories influencing their philosophical stance. Some theories have been refuted while others have been regarded yet the insight provided by these aesthetes has been profound. Several of these aesthetes studied have helped in shaping one particular individual’s viewpoint in the creation of her own philosophy of art.

“ The artist is creator of beautiful things”(1). This aphorism coveys that beauty can be found within art and by looking at art one is looking at beautiful perfection. “The moral life of man forms part of the subject matter of the artist but the mortality of the art consist of perfect use of an imperfect medium”(1). What the author is trying to explain through this aphorism is that artist use the imperfect things they find in the imperfect world as subjects in their art. However the make these imperfect things become perfect and beautiful through their art work. These aphorism both suggest the aesthetic attitude because they support the idea that “ the highest pleasure is to be found in art”.
When we appreciate others’ creativity, or better yet, actively bring creativity to bear in our own experiences, such participation shapes our sense of self and can render physical and emotional experiences. Through creative expression and engagement with the visual arts, individuals are able to discover, share, express, and feel aspects of the human experience. The meaning and interpretation behind works of visual art can be quite complex as the artist attempts to convey his or her reflections of the human condition to an individual or audience. The complexity of the aesthetic judgment begets an infinite number of interpretations for any given piece of art, any one of which may be considered valid to an individual. Although, when a piece

To talk about the Enlightenment taking current times into consideration, and more specifically to talk about an enlightened aesthetic, may seem unusual as the concept “enlightened” is usually identify with political regimes and scientific systems. But the truth is a return to the meaning of the concept of enlightenment and its aesthetic has never been so necessary for understanding the world that surrounds us as now. At a time in which "cultural marketing" and culture industries and their products are spreaded, it is inevitable to put back on scene the aesthetic reflection that accompanies the Enlightenment movement of the 18th century. For them, one of the great aesthetic categories traditions will be discussed: the sublime, starting from
The role of art in human life has been studied by several philosophers throughout time. Frederik Schiller (1795-1805), in his “Letters On the Aesthetic Education of Man” develops the theory of the drives to explain the fragmentation of the human being and places art in a reconciliatory role between man’s personal nature and the community. The present essay will discuss in some detail Schiller’s theory of the drives, placing the main focus on the role and importance of the play-drive in human life, to finally discuss the features in Schiller’s theory of play that help elucidate the role of art in human life.
Leo Tolstoy’s aesthetical assessment of art, and the role progress plays in regards to it, contrast greatly from that of the French artist, Marcel Duchamp.

The essence of art is the union of inspiration, discovery, imagination, and power displayed and interpreted through our five senses. Art cannot be demonstrated, nor identified by any absolute source; no one can or ever shall deem any one piece or sense as “true art.”. For art is individualized and perceived differently by each being. The appreciation of what one brings to be experienced by others classifies as art, for art is to be appreciated in different perspectives; whether it be in sorrow, pleasure, comfort, or uneasiness. With the creation of art comes the birthplace of power. With the beauty of art, comes its flexibility and willingness to bind itself to any form that you dictate.
Even though I truly appreciate the effort of philosophers in trying to identify a generic definition, I assume that there is not a unique definition of Art, this word is far too complex and matter of subjectivity, and I believe that it is not necessary “to incorporate the universal in the particular.”
Life consists of constant cycles of spontaneous outbursts of joy and unexpected disappointments; there is an upside to this repetitive tug of war. On this rock we call home, we are surrounded by the most gorgeous creations, structures, and landscapes that add a touch of serenity to our miserable existences called aesthetics.
