Aesthetics, also known as esthetics, is an academic branch of psychology that studies the aesthetics of beauty, and the psychology of art. It studies subjective and individualistic values, sometimes also referred to as personal and aesthetic judgments of taste and emotion. One branch of aesthetics studies how art affects the user's mental processes and emotional response to it, while another branch studies the production, management, and sales aspects of aesthetics, particularly as they pertain to the visual arts and entertainment industries.

The three major schools of aesthetics are aesthetics, philosophy of art, and counseling aesthetics. Each school of aesthetics has at least two different perspectives on the relationship between aesthetics and philosophy of art, and each of these has at least one proposed definition of the word "aesthetic". The major branches of aesthetics each have at least three perspectives: toward a philosophy of art, toward production, and toward sales and distribution. Their perspectives are discussed in detail in various literature by philosophers, aesthetic experts, and aestheticians.

Philosophical studies of aesthetics examine how an aesthetic experience is related to various psychological theories and characteristics of the mind and its function, such as affect, memory, and reasoning. They analyze how different aesthetic experiences may be triggered by the knowledge and skills needed to access creative potential, such as having a photographic memory, learning to distinguish between things that are familiar and things that are not, developing expressive and receptive language, understanding how certain smells and tastes change with exposure to specific conditions, how colors and light interact with each other, and the ability to produce a visual image that comes from the brain's visual system. Philosophical aestheticians consider aesthetics to be a rational science that has a solid empirical background and various consequences. They use works of art and philosophy as an interpretive mirror into how we view abstract things, such as nature, art, and culture. In this way, aesthetics as a philosophical study is an attempt to make sense of the world around us and the function of aesthetic objects in human life.
