Životaschopnosť jedného prístupu. Poznámky ku kantovskej línii interpretácie kategórie vznešeného (pokračovanie)

Adrián Kvokačka


To elaborate on the intention of the previous contribution, this paper opens again the problem of reception of Kant's definition of the category sublime. Variations performed by Schopenhauer, Nietzsche and Adorno represent some innovative approaches. Bridging the history of this aesthetic category in the 20th century in their thinking represents the functionality of the sublime, which we observe through the transformations in artistic and aesthetic discourse and which encourages us to a contemporary revaluation of this concept.
