What is beauty? This question is what each of us is pursuing and exploring. Everything have their own beauty, this recognition of “beauty” is constantly changing along with the development of human civilization. The word “aesthetic” comes from the Greek and its original meaning is “feeling to the senses”. Everyone has different opinion on beauty. Some scholars think that the object of aesthetics research is beauty itself, while others believe that the object of aesthetics research is art, and aesthetics is the philosophy of art.
