On the center of Hegel’s Aesthetics is the belief of the attractive as harmony. This team spirit turns fragile as soon as the mind's self-awareness turns into conceptual and extends past sensory phantasm.

Sample text

But there is absolutely no problem in depicting someone, say Rodney, who is at one and the same time a violinist, a buffoon and a billiard player. I simply depict Rodney, since if Rodney is a violinist, billiard player and buffoon, any picture of him is a picture of someone who is all those things.

But that is no help whatsoever to Goodman.

In a turmoil of rage and jealousy he still goes to the play and, at the moment when Desdemona is killed by the jealous Othello, applauds. Here one might say that his particular situation has prevented him from taking the proper aesthetic attitude. These cases fuel the influential notion that the aesthetic involves putting “psychical distance” between oneself and the object to which one responds. In the fog, I responded aesthetically by distancing myself from practical action. At the play, the jealous man could not distance himself enough to respond aesthetically, no more than did those, possibly mythical, early cinema audiences who fired at the screen.

There are cases of art that involve copying, notably some mime. It is unclear, however, what is copied in Edward Scissorhands, “Nessun dorma”, or the Judge Dredd comic strip. Secondly, the account misses the goodness of art. Copies are not always greeted with the approbation with which we tend to greet art, our reaction to finding a well-forged fiver in our change being, at best, a mixture of approbation for the skill and disapprobation for the deceit. Thirdly, the account leaves out creativity.
