Ludwig Wittgenstein: Aesthetics and Beauty

- I disagree with Ludwig Wittgenstein when he states that aesthetics “draws one’s attention to certain features, to place things side by side so as to exhibit these features” because of the logic that gives birth to the thoughts that led to this statement.

Wittgenstein uses the metaphor of games to illustrate his points regarding aesthetics and beauty....   [tags: Ludwig Wittgenstein]
