Kant and the Ends of Aesthetics

by G. Banham


View All Available Formats & Editions


This work presents a rethinking of Critical Philosophy through the recovery of a larger sense of 'aesthetics' in Kant. It provides an original unitary reading of the Critique of Judgement . This is situated in relation to Kant's attempt to think ends in general. The question of how to think ends is argued to guide Kant both in his treatment of aesthetics and teleology and to provide the rationale for critique itself. This challenging work will set a new standard for engagements with Kant.
