Philosophy of Art Ph 2113: Spring 2020 Write short essays to answer the following questions. Part One: Answer the following questions (each answer should be about 80-100 words) 1. What distinguishes Kant’s “critical” approach to aesthetics and art from the “metaphysical” ones of Schelling, Hegel, or Nietzsche? 2. Explain the different between an “artistic” culture and an “aesthetic” one and how that applies to the modern (post-Enlightenment, democratic) age. 3. Explain the idea of “absolute Art” as it crystallizes in Schelling, Hegel, or Nietzsche (any one of them is enough). (Art with a capital A refers to the idea of absolute Art throughout these prompts.) 4. How does modern aesthetics from Kant on reflect ancient tensions of iconophilia and iconoclasm, and of art as imitation and as communication with the beyond, the dead, the invisible, the transcendent? Part Two: Answer question for each of the three thinkers, Schelling, Hegel, Nietzsche. Each answer should be about 250-300 words. Schelling 5. What is the fundamental paradox or contradiction in Schelling’s argument for the philosophical superiority of Art to philosophy? What are the implications for Art and for philosophy? Hegel 6. Explain Hegel’s thesis of the “end of Art” in the modern age—why (and in what sense) Art “for us” is a “thing of the past.” 7. Explain Hegel’s distinction between and sequence of Symbolic, Classical, and Romantic types of art. 8. How does Hegel transform or replace the idea of art as “imitation” with the idea of expression (or spirit as self-objectifying, self-externalizing, or self-creating)? Nietzsche 9. Explain Nietzsche’s distinction between Apollo and Dionysus as symbols of artistic drives, forms of experience, and modes of culture or civilization. 10. Why does the rise of philosophy with Socrates signify the end of the “tragic age” of the Greeks for Nietzsche? 11. Why does Socratic-Alexandrian culture ultimately lead to a moral crisis that can be resolved, for Nietzsche, only by a rebirth of tragic myth (in the form of Richard Wagner’s music)? 12. Explain how Nietzsche plays off the visual image and musical imitation or representation against each other (in the Apollonian and the Dionysian) such that music “imitates” reality (or gives us a re-presentation of being or existence), while the artistic image is the “appearance of an appearance,” an illusion of perfection.

PHILOSOPHY OF ART

2
Part One

Question 1
Kant’s perspective on beauty and aesthetic judgment lie on the notion that a person finds
pleasure from an element after the standpoint that it is beautiful and not seeing it as attractive due
to the pleasure it provides. Therefore, Kant asserts that a person’s perception is reliant on some
existing sensible reality that encircles their judgment. Such is different from Nietzsche, Hegel,
and Schelling metaphysical approaches to perception following that, unlike Kant, who
generalizes his theory under the notion that perception is an element of one’s mental
construction, the other three philosopher’s metaphysical approach to aesthetics is associated with
the general societal perspective.
Question 2
Aesthetic culture marks a person’s life art. It is the transformation of societal moral
debility to act or create a conscious or unconscious assumption of how a person ought to live in
the sense of controlling life and giving it form on a societal platform. On the other hand, an
artistic culture is a collective culture that agrees with individualized notions of how life is to be
held in perspective (Korsmeyer, 1977). These concepts have a play in the modern age in that the
agreeability of a common good in life, and the freedom for a person to choose what is right to
them.
Question 3
Absolute art is the philosophical and literary investigation of an art meaning and the truth
the art claims. According to Hegel, absolute art, as an object, is considered by a conscious mind

due to the interconnectivity or the acquaintance of the self with the item. Here, Hegel alludes that
for one to understand the absolute art of an object, they have to relate to the object and be
acquainted with the shallower meaning of the object’s art to understand the more profound
absolute art of an object or a person.
Question 4
The modern aesthetics provided by Kant and other later philosophers idealize that a
person’s judgment from the beauty, or rather, a perspective to the real-life experiences. Such
reflects on the ancient political and religious tensions of iconoclasm due to the sentimentality
visual representations created. Iconoclasm relates to the communication of the dead through
visual representations. Modern aesthetics coined by Kant and later philosophers on tensions on
iconophilia given the diversity of perceptions provided by visual representations. Such was
widening the variety of human perception on various life issues such as politics and religion.
Part 2
Schelling
Question 5
The stretch of philosophy identifies that the Schelling contributions create a fundamental
inconsistency between his assumption on the philosophical relevance of art and philosophy. Such
creates a barrier to an exact conception that art is philosophically superior to philosophy.
According to (Shaw, 2014), Schelling’s aesthetic intuition on art illuminates that the viewpoint
of art surpasses the marginalization of both natural philosophy and practical philosophy. Under
the perception that criticism holds a firmer effect than dogmatism, art provides an unconscious

yet fundamental freedom to subject aesthetics. Schelling idealism of art is a means of delivering
the subjective reality of nature through the free wil...
