Úvahy o slobode Kantom koncipovanej geniality

Štefan Haško

Abstract


The gravity of freedom, as one of the main features and privileges of Kant’s genius, can be verified by the fact, according to which his artistic creation reveals itself within the so-called Beautiful, Free Art. Despite all that, the work originates from reflections, which present themselves as reasons to reassess the main themes and characteristics in Kant’s esthetic theory. In the paper, I deal with the analysis of a narrowed down understanding of genius; i.e. by interpreting freedom as ‘solely’ the liberation from rules of art creation and at the same time, in respect to Kant's conception of disinterestedness, from all outside-art objectives. In respect of concepts of genius specified by Kant, we can ask ourselves about the issue at hand; is it even possible for a genius to be unsatisfied with the mechanics of his own genius, in other words him being a genius per se.
