Sažetak
Is aesthetics something nice but not necessary or does it rather, as Lipscombe says count “among the most complex responses of the human mind”, and so be conceived as a form of knowing? If the latter is true, is there a relation between science and art, rationality and imagination, logic and intuition, cognition and emotion, etc.? If beauty as a product of human artistic activity is related to pleasure, and if pleasure is found among the living beings other than human animals, can we claim that we are the only living artists? The paper is a brief exposition of some of the selected aspects of otherwise wast area. It is divided in three parts: 1. First is meant to illustrate my notion of aesthetics that is more fundamental than the dominant view that affiliates, or even reduces, aesthetic to the artistic. 2. Beauty and its possible biological relevance ; 3. What would be a Darwinian paradigm of aesthetics?
