Why read Kantâs Critique of Judgment today? Does this classic of aesthetic theory still possess the vitality to prompt those of us engaged with art and criticism to think more deeply about issues that move us, issues such as the force of aesthetic experience, the essence of art, and the relationship of beauty and meaning? It does, if we find the right way into it.
Michel Chaouli shows us one such way. He unwraps the gray packing paper of Kantâs prose to reveal the fresh and fierce ideas that dwell in this masterpieceânot just the philosopherâs theory of beauty but also his ruminations on organisms and life. Each chapter in Thinking with Kantâs Critique of Judgment unfolds the complexity of a key concept, to disclose its role in Kantâs thought and to highlight the significance it holds for our own thinking.
Chaouli invites all who are interested in art and interpretationânovice and expert alikeâto set out on the path of thinking with the Critique of Judgment. The rewards are handsome: we see just how profoundly Kantâs book can shape our own ideas about aesthetic experience and meaning. By thinking with Kant, we learn to surpass the horizon of his thought and find ourselves pushed to the very edge of what can be grasped firmly. That is where Kantâs book is at its most thrilling.
