Beauty and Morality at Immanuel Kant

Claudia Buda

Abstract


This article presents an overview of Kant's agreements on beauty and morality. For Kant, beauty in general, whether it is the beauty of nature or the beauty of art, is called expression. It is true that there is no science of beauty, but only a critique of beauty, no beautiful science, but only beautiful art. A science of beauty would imply scientific determination, that is, the judgment of the beautiful would belong to science which is not possible. Kant asserts that the intellect proves, by the possibility of a priori laws, that we can know it only as a phenomenon and indicates an over-sensitive substrate that is indeterminate.

KEY WORDS: beauty, sensitive, a priori, morality, phenomenon, true
