Kant, Art, and Art History: Moments of Disciplineby Mark A. Cheetham
Pub. Date: 04/02/2009
Publisher: Cambridge University Press
Kant, Art, and Art History: Moments of Discipline is the first systematic study of Kant's reception and influence on the visual arts and art history. Arguing against Kant's transcendental approach to aesthetic judgment, Cheetham examines five "moments" of his influence. The final chapter focuses on Kant's "image," both in contemporary and posthumous portraits, with respect to his status as the image of philosophy within a disciplinary hierarchy. In Cheetham's reading, Kant emerges as a figure who has constantly erected and crossed the borders among art, its history, and philosophy.
