New PDF release: Aesthetics After Metaphysics: From Mimesis to Metaphor

By Miguel Beistegui

This e-book makes a speciality of a measurement of artwork which the philosophical culture (from Plato to Hegel or even Adorno) has constantly ignored, such was once its dedication – specific or implicit – to mimesis and the metaphysics of fact it presupposes. De Beistegui refers to this measurement, which unfolds open air the gap that stretches among the practical and the supersensible – the distance of metaphysics itself – because the hypersensible and convey how the operation of paintings to which it corresponds is better defined as metaphorical. The move of the publication, then, is from the classical or metaphysical aesthetics of mimesis (Part One) to the aesthetics of the hypersensible and metaphor (Part Two). opposed to a lot of the background of aesthetics and the metaphysical discourse on paintings, he argues that the philosophical price of paintings doesn’t consist in its skill to bridge the gap among the practical and the supersensible, or the picture and the assumption, and demonstrate the practical as proto-conceptual, yet to open up a special feel of the practical. His target, then, is to shift the place and role that philosophy attributes to artwork.
