Course Description: This course provides a thorough and multi-faced interpretation of the “Critique of Judgment” (1790) by Kant, often called the “Third Critique.” Within the era of Enlightenment and early Romanticism, the author has composed this ground-breaking work in two parts: aesthetic judgment (on the beautiful and the sublime) and teleological judgment (on nature and its forms of purposiveness). Primary attention is paid to the fact that both parts are methodologically united by a peculiar reflective mode of judging, differing from determinative judging, as is the case in theoretical knowing and ethical willing. Given these preliminary contextual conditions, this course explores different, but complementary interpretations. Episodically, the course deals with complementary topics such as fine art and genius; beauty as the symbol of morality; the principle of universal mechanism of matter and the principle of purposiveness; and philosophical considerations on culture and physico-theology.
