In their essay “The Intentional Fallacy,” Wimsatt and Beardsley claimed “the design or intention of the artist is neither available nor desirable as a standard for judging the success of a work of literary art.” It was not always available, since it was often difficult to obtain, but, in any case, it was not appropriately available, according to them, unless there was evidence for it internal to the finished work of art. Aside from Dutton, others exploring this realm include Brian Boyd, Noel Carroll, Nancy Easterlin, David Evans, Jonathan Gottschall, Paul Hernadi, Bracha Ettinger (artist and psychoanalist), Patrick Hogan, Elaine Scarry, Wendy Steiner, Robert Storey, Frederick Turner, and Mark Turner.

But is this solution working, or is it making things worse? We can ask whether at the end of the 20th century and beginning of the 21st, are we still in the modernist period or are we moving beyond that into a postmodern place, a post-aesthetic phase? 2. The end of the polytheism of the ancients reveals features that are not unrelated to our own Christian millennium. The Routledge Companion to Aesthetics, 2nd Edition.

I myself have been trapped at dinner parties at which conversation was devoted exclusively to the topic of commuter routes. The school that emerged from his work is called linguistic analysis. On the one hand, it figures as a genuinely emancipatory force - as a community of subjects now linked by sensuous impulse and fellow-feeling rather than by heteronomous law, each safeguarded in its unique particularity while bound at the same time into social harmony. …On the other hand, the aesthetic signifies what Max Horkheimer has called a kind of ‘internalized repression,’ inserting social power more deeply into the very bodies of those it subjugates, and so operating as a supremely effective mode of political hegemony...

Annelies Degryse of Leuven University breaks down this conception of judgment into two constituent parts and connects it to Kant’s “community sense.” Picking up on the argument by Ronald Beiner that Arendt “detranscendentalizes” Kant, Degryse describes how this move to a plurality of spectators can be understood as an “empricalizing” Kant. Many people disagreed with Hobbes and though that some human actions were disinterested, that is, done for their own sake, enjoyed and appreciated for their own sake.

Most famously, he quotes Matthew Arnold approvingly in his preface to The Renaissance, only to overturn Arnold’s idea in the following clause: “To see the object as in itself it really is,” has been justly said to be the aim of all true criticism whatever; and in aesthetic criticism the first step towards seeing one’s object as it really is, is to know one’s own impression as it really is, to discriminate it, to realise it distinctly.. ..

It is his belief that as Latvians distance themselves from past colonial rule, they will begin to see their land in a less narrow fashion and recognize its sublime characteristics.

The four essays gathered in Part III, "Aesthetic Subjects: Bodies, Minds, Identities," explore the varied implications of aesthetics for understand­ing the nature, formation, and instantiation of selves and identities. Kant, of course, had no interest in mysticism, famously pillorying the Swedish spiritualist, Emanuel Swedenborg ("Dreams of a Visionary, Explained by Dreams of Metaphysics," 1766), but it is important to note what mysticism would be in Kantian philosophy.

Sadler, Albert. "Objective vs Subjective." Aesthetic Realism shows that our self-expression is enhanced crucially by our attitude to the world: when we want to have respect rather than contempt.
