ABSTRACT
The article explores several issues concerning the puzzles and mystery of art. These issues include the nature of art and beauty, the creation of, and response to art, and the role of art in society, which are considered complex and puzzling. The author cites the work of Margaret Battin and John Fisher "Puzzles About Art: An Aesthetics Casebook," wherein he claims that the writers present real and hypothetical situations that have challenged or could challenge assumptions about concepts central to philosophical aesthetics. He stressed that those writers pose questions that prompts readers to contemplate and examine their assumptions and beliefs.
