THE KANTIAN NOTION OF AESTHETIC JUDGMENT: THE BEAUTIFUL, THE SUBLIME, AND IMPORT FOR AESTHETIC LEARNING
This paper is sequel to “Philosophical, Professional and Epistemological Aesthetics: Nexus and Fundamental Issues and Arguments” (Aghaosa, 2014). Using the philosophical methods of language and logical analyses and arguments by analogy; and the methods of documentary inspection, the paper explored what should critically count as aesthetic judgment. Immanuel Kant’s aesthetic judgment of the beautiful and the sublime provided the conceptual framework of analysis .Schopenhauer and Nietzsche’s different hypothetical accounts from the phenomenological perspectives of these aesthetic categories helped to illustrate the effects of the beautiful and the sublime on the aesthetic spectator.
