Description

Concerned with the central topics of Kant's aesthetics, this book applies his general theory to the particular arts of music, architecture and sculpture. It poses fundamental questions about Kantian aesthetics: how successfully does Kant integrate aesthetic and critical judgement within his general theory? How can a unified account of beauty find beauty within the arts? And how can we reconcile Kant's aesthetic formalism with the thoroughly humane conception he has of the place of the beautiful in our lives. Concentrating on neglected themes in Kant, Anthony Savile proposes a fresh interpretation of Kant's aesthetic thought, firmly integrating his aesthetics within his overall philosophy.show more
