THE INTEGRATED APPROACHTO THE STUDY OF ART                                                                                          

Abstract: At the present stage of scientific knowledge development of art the question is currently discussed.  This knowledge however is not a conglomerate from scientific interests of the various sciences, each of all researches for its place in its own subject. There is some other system too from the knowledge, which is devoted to the art as a unique subject, a science with definite internal structure, methods and all necessaries in this case related to internal thematic and logic connections.

There are many reasons to assert that the opening panorama from scientific knowledge of art is an original system, which is organized or should be organized, at the same time from a didactic point of view. In this complicated total system of knowledge could be shown basic components: art knowledge, which give separate private sciences in social science and natural science; theories or scientific knowledge of art; theories and comprehensions, which are derived from art practice; philosophy of art  and aesthetics; the last one is organically connected with this science.

Knowledge of art received from various sciences, however, should be integrated. The need for such unification is determined by the specific nature of the studied object, because art as a kind of organic phenomenon requires complete integrity and knowledge about it.

The model of interrelated knowledge of art could be defined as “art studies”. In that way the discussing problems about the correctness of traditional concept “art studies” in hands as a simple sum of all sciences and theories for different arts could be taken down from their discussions.
