I publish in the Scientific Report 7 studies on the following concepts :
"Avant-garde" - this notion presupposed the historical conception of progress and the view regarding art as the representative high culture. The newness it claimed for was linked with the commercialism, and radically changed the being of art with its neglect of "metier", as to raise the re-definition of art.
"Newness/originality" - while the newness concerns perception, originality is the evaluative judgment on newness peculiar to the modern West. But with the concept of modernity, simple newness and fashion, and even the insistence of the sensational have been emphasized.
"The sublime" comes from rhetoric and designated the spiritual effect. In early modern times, it became one of the basic aesthetic categories, meaning the power of extremely large or strong. Its resurrection at the second half of the 20^<th> Century was done because some philosophers de-aesthetized it and related to the avant-gardist critical spiri
"Narrative" comprehends three different things ; narration, text, and the related fact. Its essence consists in the making the connection of two fact as cause and effect. It owes its philosophical interest to this phenomenological feature.
"Reproduction" is a multiplication of art object. There are two sorts: one with original and the other without original. Along with the radical progress of technology, reproduction has become extremely important, and especially with so-called "simulacra" that is signs without materiality, it is modifying the style of aesthetic experience.
"Grace/the erotic". Grace, regarded as the beauty of movement in modern times, was originally the beauty of life, and overlaps with the erotic. From such a viewpoint, we can grasp creative activity on the basis of life and civilization.
"Rhythm" means the vital feeling of moving phenomena. Although having been regarded as essence of music at the 19^<th> Century, it was dissolved in the 20^<th> Century music. Its importance is now found in bodily movement such as sports and dance. Less
