Kants Theorie des reinen Geschmacksurteils

De Gruyter
November 1990

The book provides a close reading of Kant's 'Critique of Judgment' and of its first part, the 'Critique of Aesthetic Judgment' in particular.  It explores Kant's various attempts at defending the claim to intersubjective validity of the aesthetic judgment. Even tough Kant understands the aesthetic judgment as based on aesthetic feelings, he is not an aesthetic relativist.  The problem is that the non-relativistic standards of the aesthetic judgment cannot be conceptualized.
