  Article:   THE CRITIQUE OF THE FACULTY OF JUDGMENT IN THE CENTURY OF CRITIQUE. .

Authors:  ELIANE ESCOUBAS.
 
       
         
  Abstract:  

This paper is an inquiry about the twofold sense of "esthetic" in Kant: as theory of the object as phenomenon (in the "Transcendental Esthetics" of the Critique of Pure Reason) and as theory of the subject, as it appears in the discussion about taste and genie in the 3rd Kantian Critique. The absence of a "transcendental aesthetics" in the Critique of the Faculty of Judgment - work dealing with the esthetical judgment - is a matter of interrogation. The analyses are leading to a theory of the subject of the Critique of the Faculty of Judgment which takes the form of a phenomenology of the internal sense and further as a phenomenology of time consciousness. Henceforth the Kantian esthetics can be envisaged as an esthetic without object and even without work of art.

Key-words: Esthetics, imagination, reflection, transcendental, schematism, symbol, Baumgarten, Kant''s First Introduction to the Critique of the Faculty of Judgment (1789).
