Neuroesthetics proposes to experimentally test beauty – a social concept de- veloped in traditional esthetic theories by traditional philosophers – and by doing so, it omits not only an entire part of contemporary esthetics but also other disci- plines studying social phenomena, such as sociology or anthropology. Therefore, my question is: what does it mean to experimentally test beauty outside of other scientific or philosophical fields, traditionally associated with the research on beauty? I argue that it is crucial for neuroesthetic research to consider disciplines devoted to studying questions of art, beauty and esthetics? Neuroesthetic research should not be only “neuro”scientific but also “esthetic.”
