Der Begriff ›Ästhetik‹ ist mehrdeutig. Im weiten Sinn, auf Alexander Gottlieb Baumgartens Arbeiten zurückgehend und von Immanuel Kant verwendet, bezieht sich der Begriff auf die Untersuchung des Bereichs der Sinnlichkeit im Gegensatz zum begrifflichen Bereich der Logik. Im engen Sinn bezieht er sich auf jenen Bereich der Philosophie, der Fragen der...

This article defends a formalist interpretation of Wittgenstein's later thought on music by comparing it with Eduard Hanslick's musical formalism. In doing so, it returns to a disagreement I have had with Bela Szabados who, in his book Wittgenstein as a Philosophical Tone-Poet, claims that the attribution of formalism obscures the role that music p...

The notion of beauty has been and continues to be one of the main concerns of aesthetics and art theory. Traditionally, the centrality of beauty in the experience of art was widely accepted and beauty was considered one of the key values in aesthetics. In recent debate, however, the significance of the notion of beauty has been discussed controvers...

Cambridge Core - Twentieth-Century Philosophy - Wittgenstein in the 1930s - edited by David G. Stern
Article
This paper argues that there is an important continuity between Wittgenstein's early remarks on religion and his later treatment of the theme as it appears in his lectures in the 1930s and in his personal diary notes at that time. This continuity pertains to 3 features. First, the early and later Wittgenstein share a critical stance on methodologic...
Article
The overall goal of this article is to show that aesthetics plays a major role in a debate at the very center of philosophy. Drawing on the work of David Bell, the article spells out how Kant and Wittgenstein use reflective judgment, epitomized by a judgment of beauty, as a key in their respective solutions to the rule-following problem they share....
Article
In 1931 Wittgenstein wrote: ‘the limit of language manifests itself in the impossibility of describing the fact that corresponds to (is the translation of) a sentence without simply repeating the sentence’. Here, Wittgenstein claims, ‘we are involved … with the Kantian solution of the problem of philosophy’. This paper shows how this remark fits wi...
Article
This paper offers a Kantian reading of Wittgenstein’s later conception of rules. Building on the continuity of Wittgenstein’s comparison between a sentence and a musical theme, the paper argues that central elements of the Kantianism one may find in Wittgenstein’s early philosophy carry over to his mature conception of grammar. Moreover, this Kanti...
Article
In this paper, I develop a Kantian reading of Ludwig Wittgenstein's early notions of immortality and the problem of life. I argue that, in spite of his rejection of the assumption of temporal immortality as a solution to the problem of life, Wittgenstein's understanding of the problem itself reflects the Kantian setting of his early system. Moreove...

According to an influential account of music, the listener's recognition of music's emotive character is a central criterion of her musical understanding. As the structural similarities between music and human emotive behavior do not unambiguously determine music's emotive character, the only available method of determining this character is to sim...

Musical formalism is often portrayed as the enemy of artistic free-dom. Its main representative, Eduard Hanslick, is seen as a purist who, by em-phasizing musical rules, aims at restricting music criticism and even musical practices themselves. It may also seem that formalism is depriving music of its ability to have moral significance, as the sema...
