THE IDEAL OF BEAUTY AND THE SUBJECTIVE UNIVERSALITY: MORALITY IN KANT’S AESTHETICS
Text topic: An Ethical Reading of Art
Text author: Уна Поповић
This paper considers the position of the relationship between the moral, the good, the beautiful and the arts in Kant’s aesthetics. Its main assumption is that this relationship, which is very important for Kant, is not self-evident for a subjectivist understanding of the aesthetics phenomena and problems, and that its assertion implies a sort of reconceptualizing of the traditional understanding of the relationship between the good and the beautiful. The analysis offered in this paper aims to investigate the problem of subjective universality and sensus communis in Kant’s understanding as a horizon which provides a backdrop for such re-conceptualization.
