A still increasing interest in aesthetics and also diversity and complexity of aesthetic studies can be noticed over the last couple of decades. The volume title, Transacting Aesthetics, emphasizes something active, dynamic, interactive, operative, participative, but also something what is malleable or in action, in progress, undergoing operations and whose boundaries cannot be circumscribed. Emergence of new scientific tools and methodologies, new artistic and aesthetic phenomena and/or new sources of aesthetic reflection make aesthetics an interdisciplinary or transdisciplinary sphere, wherein disciplinary convergences are privileged; reshaping the domain into a field being subjected to permanent transacting.
