      The Sublimity of MeasurementMy recent interest is in the aesthetics of measurement, that is, in the criteria we use to chose a scale, or metric, when we make measurements of any kind, scientific or as part of everyday life This choice of metric is the most important factor in measurement since mistakes in choosing an inappropriate metric are far significant than any subsequent errors in using a metric Mistakes in the choice of metric are also far difficult to detect because they involve judgme [...]

      I ve previously reviewed both The Critique of Pure Reason and The Critique of Practical Reason, describing some of the reasons why the reading of the three critiques led to what might be called a conversion experience or perhaps an intellectual mystical or jnana experience.For one who has sedulously studied Kant, the third critique is a kind of capstone as it brings a lot of loose threads of his arguments together in a rather ecstatically inspiring manner I certainly experienced a kind of intell [...]

      This is probably my favorite of Kant s three critiques Pure and Practical Reason being the other two However, when it comes to reading Kant, saying favorite is not quite right he was such a bad writer, and such a brilliant thinker, its hard to deal with some times.In any case, this is very interesting because he looks at judgment as a reflective action, both concerning objects of art that are beautiful or sublime, and teleological reflection in nature.

    5. Scott Langston on said:

      Whist I have to admit I had to read this for study, I m phenomenally glad that I did It s horribly impenetrable, though Very, very hard work to get through, let alone digest Do I understand Kant No, not really Can I talk about him and his ideas comfortably Well, yes, kind of Would I recommend this Not as light reading, or for fun If you want to understand Kant, there are far accessible works by better writers explaining him

    7. Alex Lee on said:

      This is a brilliant work, although it is somewhat mis titled Kant spends time with teleology than with judgement, although the two are related Here he clears the ground for teleological thinking as a whole In a direct way, Kant is speaking of ideology through teleology as a point of caption for a logical system He clearly separates this from the suprasensible point of caption and yet with the sublime Kant locates the Other as being the source of this teleological purpose He closes the immanent [...]

      I haven t read the entire book only selections for a class , but I had a lot of trouble with the translation, so I read it in parallel with the Guyer Matthews translation from CUP The Cambridge edition was significantly easier for me to understand, and I noticed that it was much truer to Kant s punctuation after I noticed some discrepancies and appealed to the German to break the tie I don t know how important that is, or how close the translation is to the original in other respects the only Ge [...]

      Isn t this, like, one of the most important books on philosophical aesthetics or something No one told me that Kant actually tries to tell jokes in it most of it is not jokes, though, and even the jokes aren t really that funny I feel like for me to rate this book would be ridiculous, so I am not doing that.

      I don t have the time to read ALL of this Got through half study related Fucking awesome, even though the process initially was like hitting your head repeatedly with a brick The bloke has neither poetry nor humour He does, however, have very rich ideas, and it s worth reading because of that

      Kant is hella difficult to readad PART of this for a class a class taught by the same guy who edited and was lead translator for this edition of the book basically, the class was only SLIGHTLY intelligible than the book.

    14. Xander on said:

      In Kritik der Reinen Vernunft 1781 , Immanuel Kant set out to reconcile rationalism and empiricism in a grand system which we call Transcendental Idealism there exist two worlds the phenomenal and the noumenal and we can only have true knowledge of the noumenal world the phenomenal world is just an imperfect representation, as constituted by our mental categories, of the world as it is in itself We should employ Pure Reason to gather synthetic knowledge a priori about the noumenal world.In the K [...]

    15. Matt on said:

      Not even beauty is safe from Kant s demand for universal truth Eye of the beholder be damned In a consistent continuation of his first two critiques, Kant seeks an objective standard in artistic taste He carefully draws distinctions between aesthetic judgments and focuses the first half of the Critique of Judgement on distinguishing the beautiful and the sublime He defines them as The beautiful in nature is a question of the form of the object, and this consists in limitation, whereas the sublim [...]

    16. Jon on said:

      Well I must say it was good if you are into philosophy In Critique of Judgement Kant explores in depth art and taste The book is broken into two main parts a critique of aesthetic judgement and a critique of teleological judgement If you are into a heady undertaking of exhaustive thought on the subject then you won t be disappointed Like Critique of Pure Reason Kant comes prepared to give aesthetics the same kind of workout he is famous for Not surprising was they way he put the objective aspect [...]

    17. Joe on said:

      Comment Kant s 3rd Critique of Judgment has always seemed a duality to me On the one hand you have the section on aesthetics while on the other hand you have the section on teleology How do they hang together Is the section on teleology really the 4th critique But what if this last, the search for intelligibility, meaning, purpose, was to be taken seriously Wouldn t it threaten to swallow all the other Critiques The search for intelligibility and purpose becomes, inevitably becomes, the Creation [...]

    18. Pavel on said:

      My encounter with the last Kant s Critique was rather casual I started it as supplementary reading to Truth and Method, but it soon turned out to be a real gem It is typical Kant precise, pedantic, with insurmountable half page long sentences, but also with unbeatable ability to grasp roots of philosophical problems In this work, I must give him one credit ability to incorporate something so intractable as beauty, taste and teleology in nature to his system And Kant outdoes himself, for he take [...]

    19. Maryanne on said:

      Dense and difficult This was my second reading a year The second time was much easier but you can really get lost Since Kant is considered one of the formost modern thinkers his writing is an essential component in the development of any sort of continuance of a coherent extension of the philosophical project He revolutionized the notion of taste and aesthetics as a methodology, an organized system of judgement and a hierarchical canon of perception His distance from the art object sets him apar [...]

    20. Michael on said:

      I would have thought this had been put on my list much earlier Oh Well this ithe text that would have driven my dissertation, had I written it Kant s theory of aesthetic judgment and teleology is an incredibly useful examination of the faculty of judgment in general and the theory of aesthetic response Kant is highly influential and anticipates a lot of what we think about in contemporary art theory, particularly as it pertains to assessing art and beauty without specific rules, or appropriatel [...]

    21. Nick on said:

      Kant is the Nostradamus of philosophy Many claim that Kant s works are filled with insights Actually, Kant s works are nothing than the products of a deranged mind I have heard bums spew incomprehensible nonsense similar to the abstruse and ambiguous writings of Kant Although there is always some reason in madness, there is very little reason to be found in Kant s madness.The professional and arm chair philosophers who extol the brilliance of Kant are fools.

    22. Boris on said:

      After reading it three times, and making a primer of it, just because of pleasure, I still think there is no other major work in western tradition dealing with the very essence of art and its nature, which is FREEDOM, even in spite of moral considerations Kant is always complex, but it is worth making the effort the reward is priceless.

    23. Anne on said:

      Read only some excerpts of the book for my class, and even that is laborious enough I m probably just not fine and critical enough to appreciate Kantian aesthetics Will definitely re read there are some parts that I still don t fully understand.

    24. Iben on said:

      How do you rate Kant How do you rate something you were just barely able to understand Should I give it 5 stars because it s a classic philosophical text Should I give it 3 stars because I honestly found it annoyingly repetitious at times 4 seems like a happy medium.

    25. Elena on said:

      Forse le idee che hanno piu senso in assoluto quando si cerca di definire un concetto tanto astratto quanto quello della bellezza Certo che si fa una fatica per capirci qualcosa, e per ritenerlo in testa, senza doverci ritornare di tanto in tanto per rinfrescarsi la memoria.

      This contains some potentially radical ideas regarding the nature of subjectivity and beauty.I enjoy reeding.
