(p.41) 3 Kant's Aesthetic Theory and Its Moral Significance
The Kantian Sublime

Paul Crowther (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

Presents a detailed overview of Kant's aesthetic theory, focusing on the first four moments of the Analytic of the beautiful. The notions of nature, the judgement of taste, ‘disinterestedness’ and ‘finality’ are given close attention. There is an extended discussion of Kant's ‘Deduction’ of the pure aesthetic judgement's claim to universality. The argument is shown to be unviable.

Keywords:   aesthetic judgement, disinterestedness, finality, Kant, nature, taste
