Kantian Aesthetics

This lecture series introduces the core ideas of Kant’s aesthetics (the first half of the third Critique). Topics explored will include beauty, sublimity, the relationship between art and knowledge, and the relationship between art and morality. Emphasis will also be placed on understanding why the third Critique has served as a source of inspiration to contemporary Kantian philosophers and theorists (Piper, Ngai), as well as to the Romantics and post-Kantian German Idealists (Coleridge, Fichte).
