Immanuel Kant on Truth of Art - Dictionary of Arguments
Gadamer I 103
Truth of Art/Kant/Gadamer: it [was] a methodical abstraction for the purpose of a very specific, transcendental effort to justify (...), which induced Kant to relate the aesthetic power of judgement entirely to the state of the subject. If this aesthetic abstraction was subsequently understood in terms of content and transformed into the demand to understand art "purely aesthetically", we now see how this demand for abstraction becomes an irresolvable contradiction to the real experience of art.
Problem/Gadamer: The appeal to immediacy, to the genius of the moment, to the significance cannot exist before the claim of human existence to continuity and unity of self-understanding. The experience of art must not be forced into the noncommittal nature of aesthetic consciousness. Cf. >Erlebniskunst/Gadamer.
This negative insight means something positive: art is insight and the experience of the work of art makes this insight part of it.
Art as recognition/GadamerVsKant: This is difficult to acknowledge when Kant measures the truth of recognition against the concept of recognition in science and the concept of reality in natural science. It is necessary to define the concept of experience more broadly than Kant did, so that the experience of the work of art can also be understood as experience. >Truth of Art/Hegel, >Worldview/Hegel._____________Explanation of symbols: Roman numerals indicate the source, arabic numerals indicate the page number.
