The Moral Importance of the Beautiful in Kant - The Moral Importance of the Beautiful in Kant I argue for an interpretation of Kant's aesthetics whereby the experience of the beautiful plays the same functional role in the invisible church of natural religion as Scripture does for the visible churches of ecclesiastical religions. Thus, I contend, the links that Kant himself implies between the aesthetic and the moral (in the third Critique and the Religion) are much stronger than generally portrayed by commentators. Indeed, for Kant, experience of the beautiful may be necessary in order to found what Kant views as the final end of morality — the ethical community — since human moral psychology requires embodiments of moral ideas....   [tags: Argumentative Ethics Aesthetic Papers]

What does Beauty means ? - Beauty. What does this word conjure up in your imagination. For most, the word “beauty” directly correlates to human aesthetics, specifically in women. The question is: why. Why do people link “beauty” to women more than to men, landscape or creatures. What is the source of the “manipulation” that connects beauty to feministic appearance. The American Heritage College Dictionary defines the word “beauty” as “[t]he quality that gives pleasure to the mind or senses…”. (125) Therefore the simple definition of “beauty” is just something that evokes a feeling of “pleasure” to a person when something strikes their taste....   [tags: attractiveness, beautiful appearence, ugly]

I would rephrase it: "Try so hard that it becomes easy, and accept the best things as the best person to receive them." For it is only hard because you do not know that it is easy....   [tags: College Admissions Essays] 395 words

The Beautiful in Kant's Third Critique and Aristotle's Poetics - The Beautiful in Kant's Third Critique and Aristotle's Poetics ABSTRACT: I argue that Kant's analysis of the experience of the beautiful in the third Critique entails an implicit or potential experience of the sublime, that is, the sublime as he himself describes it. Finding the sublime in the beautiful is what I call philosophical beauty. I then consider some aspects of Aristotle's analysis of tragedy in the Poetics, specifically his identification of the key elements of tragedy as those involving the experience of fear and pity, which leads to a catharsis of these emotions....   [tags: Kant Third Critique Aristotle Poetics Essays] 3443 words

Ibsen did not hold back with regard to challenging even the most widely accepted societal norms; this led to many of his plays becoming extremely controversial....   [tags: Literary Analysis ] 1380 words
