(p.1) Introduction
The Kantian Aesthetic

Paul Crowther (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

Kant's major Anglo-American and German commentators often take an interminablist approach. This involves the expenditure of interpretative energy in searching out ways to make Kant read consistently within the framework of the critical corpus. Succinctly, interminablism is the tendency to see Kant's aesthetic theory as the problem to be solved rather than a basis for problem solving. This chapter, in contrast, develops Kant's theory as a basis for solving more general problems in aesthetics. It criticizes and reconstructs his arguments using detailed phenomenological investigations of concrete aesthetic phenomena. These investigations show how Kant's Transcendental Deduction and Schemata are of the most direct relevance to aesthetic experience.

Keywords:   interminablism, aesthetic theory, problem solving, phenomenological, concrete aesthetic phenomena, Transcendental Deduction, Schemata
