|Gadamer I 45
Moral Philosophy/Antique Philosophy/Gadamer: The emergence of the concept of taste in the 17th century (...) leads (...) into contexts of moral philosophy that go back to antiquity.
It is this humanistic and thus ultimately Greek component that becomes effective within the moral philosophy determined by Christianity. Greek ethics - the ethics of measurements of the Pythagoreans and Plato, the ethics of the Mesotes created by Aristotle - is in a deep and comprehensive sense an ethics of good taste.
Gadamer I 46
Such a thesis certainly sounds strange to our ears. Firstly, because the ideal normative element in the concept of taste is usually misunderstood and the relativistic-sceptical reasoning about the differences in taste is in our ears.
Ethics/KantVs: Above all, however, we are determined by Kant's moral-philosophical achievement, which has purified ethics of all aesthetic and emotional moments. >Judgement/Kant._____________Explanation of symbols: Roman numerals indicate the source, arabic numerals indicate the page number.
