For the past few years we have witnessed the discussion among philosophers arguing about the sense of teaching the aestetics as an obligatory subject in teaching philosophy. We have two excluding opinions here: the firm sceptical, treating the aestetics as peripheral field for the philosophy itself. Since the aestetics has problems with deciding the basic matters, fundamental for the discipline, such as nature of beauty, ontological status of art, nature of aestetical and artistic experience, social and individual impact of art or the rules for verification of aestetical thesis. Even defining the subject of aestetical research itself, that is art, until today has been and still is a problem, especially in the last decade.
