This may also help us to give an answer to one of the most important questions about aesthetic experience, namely, why should we care? Why do we pay large sums of money to put ourselves in a position to have an aesthetic experience (which, as we have seen, doesn’t always then materialize)? If we accept my claim about the centrality of aesthetic attention in understanding aesthetic experience, the answer will be straightforward: because aesthetic experiences allow us to see and attend to the world differently: in a way that we don’t, and couldn’t, see it otherwise.
