Life aestheticians reveal the nature and significance of human life as the starting point of all aesthetic research, and then push and to human existence. They are not human life as is material, rational entity, but as a subject to their own experience, and understand, that is, the activities of the mind process. Emphasis on life and passion beyond reason or experience, the rapid development of modern industrial rational repression beyond. Dilthey is one of the important representatives. This article focuses on analysis of Dilthey the life aesthetic theory, and then use the Dilthey life aesthetics to explain the mystery of the survival of mankind today - what kind of a way of life is the most effective existence of life.

The existence of life is an experience-existence of life and experience are inseparable. Individual life itself is the sum of the experience, and the experience also confirms the existence of life. In many experience, the experience of art is one of the most effective life, because life itself is an art exist, and as the crystallization of the experience the medium of expression - a work of art is life experience. In the the technical rationality first years of human rationality is depressed, has lost integrity of human existence and become the slaves of their own rational creatures.

The experience of art is such a spiritual way, the experience of art in the subject and the object is blending things I, regardless, it enables people to change their lives, change their existence in the most profound level, so that the life of kind of ecstasy realm of freedom, get rid of the shackles of the mechanical rationalism, to achieve the liberation of the true sense of the life body. Of course, this free land beyond the real basis, with a lot of exclusive indeed difficult to achieve for the people who live in real life, but at least it provides an aesthetic trends for our efforts directions.
