According to the interpretation which is based on Being and Truth derived from Heidegger’s narration of history of Aesthetics, for the Greek, Art was a way to generate, to disclose, the beings therefore, it was a way for the establishment of the truth. So the status of art was well-defined and the need to it was inevitable. In Plato’s thought – by his own conception of art and generation [poiesis] on the basis of the theory of Idea – art lost his early relation to truth, and then it was to decide on its status in the human life. This characterizes the beginning of Aesthetics. Moreover, Plato’s thought as the origin of Aesthetics has the elements characterized as the basic elements of Aesthetics it means the entrance of Beauty to the definition of art and divergence among beauty and truth. During modern age and the emergence of subjectivism the divergence among the beautiful, the true, and the good had been completed and the artwork turned to an object of aisthesis. Therefore, art as the role of creating the beautiful and the aesthetic pleasure couldn’t have essential role in human life. This is the event characterized as the end of art in Hegel’s Aesthetics. However, The last phases of the history of Aesthetics is characterized by Nietzsche and Wagner’s attempts in order to make restitution for art’s necessity, though, Heidegger believes, these attempts couldn’t be successful.
Keywords: aesthetics, art, being, truth, beauty, the end of art
