Art´s relationship to humankind exists, it seems, through the senses. The fact that we have different kinds of art might be associated with the circumstance that we have disparate senses. The differentiation of the senses and the focus on their specificities lead to af focus on the divergent ways in which the aesthetic experience is transmitted. The arts can thus be neccessarily understood as a fundamental plurality, since there is no single way to experience art, but rather several, due to the dissimiliarities among the senses. Accordingly, we tend for instance to distinguish between those arts that lend themselves to the senses of distance (sight and hearing) and the proximate senses of smell, touch and taste.
