Heidegger and the Question of Aesthetics
This chapter explores Heidegger's aesthetic theory. Heidegger's response to the question of aesthetics is to be found mainly in Volume One of his Nietzsche study, and the well-known essay ‘The Origin of the Work of Art’. Section I begins by expounding and elaborating Heidegger's position in the Nietzsche study, and picking out some areas of difficulty. Section II discusses the salient aspects of Heidegger's theory in ‘The Origin of the Work of Art’ and, after considering its merits, relates it back to the most important issue in the areas of difficulty noted in Section I.
