|Das Spiel in der Ästhetik|
Systematische Überlegungen zu Kants "Kritik der Urteilskraft"
2006, 236 S, Gb, (Gruyter)
How is the aesthetic appreciation of objects to be understood? According to Kant, not as a case of cognitive knowledge. Using the free play of cognitive ability, he provides an answer which appeals above all through its intuitive plausibility. This book argues, however, that the role of play in aesthetics can only be clarified after we have fully considered the practicalistic tendency in Kant's approach.
