Abstract

This study aims at evaluating the aesthetic views of Immanuel Kant. The experience of the beautiful and that of the sublime are discussed. The experience of the beautiful is analysed with respect to the faculties of imagination and understanding and the notion of free play. The experience of sublime is defined as the moment of facing the transcendental I as the original condition of all possible human experience.
