Because the individual who is in an artistic endeavor takes a journey towards his/her inner world. The individual enters the process of creativity with the help of imagination. At the end of this process, the “I” sense of the individual who experiences aesthetic pleasure is stimulated. This stage is the first step of man on the path to becoming an individual.
