O nevysloviteľnom v umení (Kant – Schopenhauer – Wittgenstein)

Štefan Haško


The work sets its goal in an attempt to name the possible relationship in Kant’s, Schopenhauer’s and Wittgenstein’s thoughts about art. The notionless character of the ’idea‘ of an art piece, outlined by Kant’s and Schopenhauer’s aesthetic theory, will be studied in the context of Wittgenstein’s points of view on the question of meaning or interpretation of art pieces. On the theme level, the chosen study can be titled as an analysis of thoughts of the alleged thinkers, these then offer reasons of silence when being ’in front of‘ an art piece. In the second part I turn my attention mainly to some of the connections concerning Wittgenstein’s thoughts and personal experience, which explain in a more broad context his silence, i.e. the mystical dimension of his philosophy.
