Art and Ethics in a Material World: Kant’s Pragmatist Legacy by Jennifer A McMahon

By Jennifer A McMahon

In this publication, McMahon argues examining of Kant’s physique of labor within the mild of a pragmatist idea of which means and language (which arguably is a Kantian legacy) leads one to place neighborhood reception sooner than person reception within the order of aesthetic relatives. A middle premise of the booklet is that neo-pragmatism attracts realization to an in a different way neglected point of Kant’s "Critique of Aesthetic Judgment," and this is often the belief of neighborhood which it units forth.


While providing an interpretation of Kant’s aesthetic conception, the ebook specializes in the consequences of Kant’s 3rd critique for modern artwork. McMahon attracts upon Kant and his legacy in pragmatist theories of which means and language to argue that aesthetic judgment is a model of ethical judgment: how to domesticate attitudes conducive to neighborhood, which performs a pivotal position within the evolution of language, that means, and knowledge.

«Para mí, desde un punto de vista filosófico, l. a. pregunta es: ¿qué significaría reconocer, aceptar, cierto tipo de permeabilidad, cierta manera en l. a. que somos afectados por otros a los que no conocemos o por los que no elegimos ser afectados? El mayor peligro para mí es el del sujeto autónomo y monolítico que intenta establecer límites e impermeabilidades absolutas, porque se niega a reconocer su carácter social y su interdependencia.
