An area of animal response  which bears comparison with the aesthetic sense-–is that of sexual response…To respond sexually is to want to possess sexually, whereas it has been widely held that the aesthetic sense …is content with mere contemplation. But this thought may derive from the fact that certain paradigms are used with regard to which no serious alternative to contemplation may be available-say sunsets …and though one cannot own a sunset…. attempting to possess may be one form of aesthetic  response .                            Arthur Danto, 1981
