Arthur C. Danto’s analytical aesthetics occupies an important theoretical position in the history of analytical aesthetics. If the “Artworld” theory is a useful attempt by Danto to use analytical philosophical methods to analyze works of art; then “The Transfiguration of the Commonplace” can be said to be the successful application of Danto’s theory of analytical aesthetics to explain and criticize art practice activities, marking the formal formation of Danto’s analytical aesthetics; the publication of “The End of Art” marks the dissolution of its analytical aesthetic thought and the return of its artistic theory to philosophy. It can be seen from the “Artworld” through “The Transfiguration of the Commonplace” to “The End of Art” that Danto’s analytical aesthetics development begins with philosophy and ends with the theoretical approach of philosophy; the article has certain value for understanding the significance of contemporary art.
