Baudelaire denounces the ideal beauty, as he injects elements of modernity -multiple perspectives, subjectivity, and emotions into his poems. He introduces multiple perspectives into the poems, as he contests the notion that beauty can only be perceived from the objective point of view. He switches between the uses of pronouns, from first person plural imperative, “contemplons” to 2nd person singular imperative, “vois” (Stamelman 256, trans. Wan). He also shifts between objectivity and subjectivity: he first distances himself from the statue and describes its physicality, but he soon adds his subjective interpretation in parenthesis and transforms the objective, aesthetic appreciation into his personal commentary (Bassim 170, trans.
He starts talking about the artist and the critic’s role, a point in which Wilde says when critics find ugly meanings in art they fail, but when they find beautiful meanings in art there is still hope. This is why he says there is no moral or immoral book, because those who seek morality in art fail, the only thing that must be found in art is beauty itself. In the end, and in order to support what was just said, Wilde concludes “Art is quite useless” (Wilde 4) and therefore no morality must be sought on
However, the most influence of theory does not mean it is right unless we accept and let it be. Beauty is an abstract concept which mean there is no certain define meaning of it. Maybe there is a theory of beauty accepted by society but it also may gradually rejected by people after they have their own define of beauty. Beauty will be what you decide it is, it depend on personal believe. Besides, attractive of beauty is a chemical reaction in our brain.
Aesthetic is a branch of the study of axiology (theory of value) in philosophy that dealing with the nature of art, beauty, and taste, with the creation and appreciation of beauty. Scientifically, it can be defined as the study of sensory and sometimes called as judgments of sentiment and taste. The scholars in this field call it as the critical reflection of art, nature and culture. When considering the epistemology of aesthetic judgment, we need to know which features of an object are aesthetically relevant, how they relate with others and how we can come to our knowledge of them. Aesthetic is important in the development of philosophy of knowledge.
His work ‘A Philosophical Enquiry into the Origin of Our Ideas of the Sublime and Beautiful’ introduces the idea of the sublime state on the mind. He believes that in order to experience the sublime, pain and pleasure must both be initially present. You must experience mental pain and fear with the recognition that this distress is of a fictional nature. It is then that the sense of pleasure is introduced in the delight of relief. (Burke 71) He also states that “If one gets too close to the perception, they no longer experience sublime emotions, only fear” (Burke 30) By this, he is stating that if a bizarre creature comes into contact which is too close, there will be no sense of a sublime relief, only the emotion of fear.
The purpose of this thesis is to gain an in depth, critical, structured understanding of the role and effects of Anti Art and its approaches towards aestheticism, primarily involving the impact on beauty in artworks. The research has two major purposes: to explore the basis, consequences and attitudes
Also, Aristotle claims, that «for moral excellence is concerned with pleasures and pains; it is on account of the pleasure that we do bad things, and on account of the pain that we abstain from noble ones.». In other words, the Greek philosopher tells us that sometimes people cannot control their desire and it leads to bad consequences, so Aristotle encourages us to control our vices, because it doesn 't bring us long-term happiness. (B) Before we make a distinction between moral and intellectual virtue, it is important to tell about the each type of virtue. 1) Moral virtue (as I mentioned) includes courage, temperance, self-discipline, generosity, friendliness, truthfulness, honesty and justice. The main peculiarities of this kind of virtue is : a)everything is learned by training or doing something, b) it develops the habit or a disposition and c)the moral virtue is located between the extremes of behavior(excess and deficiency) -
However, there are times when nature and imagination are in conflict with each other; for example, when imagination acts as an illusion, and distracts us from confronting the issue. Imagination is one of the most prominent aspects of Romantic poetry. Wordsworth defines imagination as “the means of deep insight and sympathy, the power to conceive and express images removed from normal objective reality”. Imagination is a way of seeing the world through a different lens. Imagination could be a different way of seeing the world as it
Arts being forms that generate emotion, artistic knowledge is emotive rather than primarily informative; suggest its strong links to emotions. Art in research places importance on evocation, promoting a form of understanding that is derived or evoked through an emotional experience. The arts main objective is to express not the feeling of the artist, but feelings the artist and his audiences can relate and know, providing a universal experience or knowledge, which communicates to thinkers. It is the insight into the human sentience, emotion, and experiences psychical and emotive that allows artistic knowledge to be regarded as more than just ornamental in character during pursuit of knowledge. Furthermore, artistic knowledge conveys the knowledge of forms outside of human perception, allowing humans to generate structures outside of reality, at the same time understanding them, through the evoked emotions.
The text is interpreted after analysis of mind of an author, unlike other types of criticisms that are concerned basicaly with text itself. This combining of literary and psychological aspect brings a unique approach. Psychoanalysis is „a discipline founded on a procedure for the investigation of mental processes that are otherwise inaccessible because they are unconcious“. (GEORGE, 2011) Freud believes that society reaches its unconscious aspect by the means of art, means of creative process. Psychoanalytical approach seeks for what is hidden behind words and reveals author personality and mind.
