Get Gebrochene Schönheit: Hegels Ästhetik – Kontexte und PDF

On the middle of Hegel’s Aesthetics is the belief of the attractive as harmony. This harmony turns fragile as soon as the mind's self-awareness turns into conceptual and extends past sensory phantasm. Focusing the philosophy of artwork at the inspiration of the attractive increases a collection of systematic difficulties, that are mentioned with reference to Hegel’s Aesthetics, its ancient contexts, and its reception.

His aim is to open the way for an alternative interpretation of imagination: imaging consciousness as well as dream consciousness are both captive consciousnesses45 , whereas pure reflexion alone remains totally spontaneous. Although Sartre changes the emphasis he places upon imagination, he remains stricken in a naIve duality between activity and passivity. We are therefore right to wonder whether Sartre's interpretation (of the imagination as a captive consciousness) is the true phenomenological counterpart to his otherwise relevant critique of Husserl's one-sided opposition between passive perception and active imagination.

See Sartre, 1943. 12. See Merleau-Ponty, 1945. 13. 277). In this regard the creative work of G. Deleuze is also an excellent reference. 14. See Levinas, 1966. 15. 93: "[... 63-64: "Plasticite de l'ontogenese", Varela, Thompson, Rosch, 1989, and van der Linden, Hupet, 1994, which deals with the possibility of a "functional plasticity" in the process of altering. 16. About time, alterity and affection, see Held, 1966; Derrida, 1964; Alter, revue de phenomenologie, n02, "Temporalite et affection", 1994, Liminaire et N.

Moreover, if imagination is understood as the power of neutralizing its object as being, it may also be used to refer to a pure activity deprived of any ontic weight. From a strictly methodological standpoint, both these modes 44 NATALIE DEPRAZ of appearance of imagination (variation, neutralization) emphasize its purely active role. No phenomenologist has pushed the contrast between perception and imagination as far as Sartre. Indeed, he deliberately exaggerated the distinction in order to carry through his critique of static phenomenology.
