Wittgenstein's Aesthetics In The Era of Digital Transformation
Wittgenstein's interest in art is diverse, as it includes the film, architecture and sculpture, music, literature and poetry. Wittgenstein's practical preoccupation with art from 1926 to 1928 extends to the areas of building design and sculpture , but after 1930, it transforms into theoretical consideration about aesthetics and art. Although Wittgenstein in the period of philosophical consideration did not pay too much attention to aesthetics, which is not entirely accidental, as he held the view that the nature of aesthetics is not appropriate for abstract philosophical discussion, the art, especially music, had a paramount place in his life. Wittgenstein’s critique of aesthetics, which is unusual for classical philosophical discourse ends with a finding that aesthetical questions belong to the field of art criticism rather than philosophical theory; otherwise, they quickly end with aestheticism. And precisely the critique of classical philosophical theories in the area of aesthetics reveal the true essence of art, with which it attributes to the understanding of culture in the era of digital transformations. With the emergence of digital technology, there has been a fundamental transformation in art. It has been encouraged by the development of digital techniques that enabled fundamental changes in traditional art, which influence the understanding of modern aesthetics.
