The Problem of Free Harmony in Kant's Aesthetics
In this book, Kenneth F. Rogerson explores the first half of Kant's Critique of Judgment, entitled the "Critique of Aesthetic Judgment." Rogerson provides an interpretation of arguably the most important issue in Kant's aesthetic theory, namely, a free harmony of the imagination and understanding. He uses this interpretation to explore several other important issues in Kant's aesthetic theory, including his distinction between art and natural beauty, the doctrine of aesthetic ideas, and the connection between beauty and morality.
