Philosophical Aesthetics Notes.

Aesthetics – 18th cent. was first used in philosophical terminology, and became one of the fundamental branches of philosophy.How it looks, how it connects with the idea.

Art -Express yourself and ideas, connect with something and someone, brings new thoughts, provokes reaction or feelings, addressing new subjects, respond to current issues, bring people together.

To know what beauty is, you have to know what ugly is.

Imitation – Copy, another version.

Sublime – Perfection, beauty, pleasure, nothing else compares to its greatness, inspires, leaves you in awe. Representing the unrepresentable.

Imitation – Offers no new knowledge or insight to the truth.

Plato is against art, Aristotle is for.

Judgement- Good taste/ Bad taste… Who sets the standards? Learn it or is personal?
