The paper presents analysis of two cognitive approaches towards the realm of art. The first of them approaches art as including self-purposeful value and is characteristic for the science of art. The other characteristic first of all to social sciences (history, psychology, sociology, economics), approaches art instrumentally, as a source of knowledge about researched subject. To the end, the interdependent character and necessity of both these approaches is addressed: research into art involves among others social sciences whereas social research supports studies of art.
