Art and Intention: A Philosophical Study

Do the artist's intentions have whatever to do with the making and appreciation of artworks? In artwork and purpose Paisley Livingston develops a vast and balanced standpoint on perennial disputes among intentionalists and anti-intentionalists in philosophical aesthetics and demanding thought. He surveys and assesses a variety of rival assumptions in regards to the nature of intentions and the prestige of intentionalist psychology.

Immanence: Deleuze and philosophy

Miguel de Beistegui identifies the impetus and driver at the back of Deleuze's philosophy and its ideas. through returning Deleuze's suggestion to its source—or, following Deleuze's personal vocabulary, to what he calls the development of that thought—Beistegui extracts its internal consistency: immanence. Chapters facing the prestige of suggestion itself, ontology, common sense, ethics, and aesthetics exhibit the style within which immanence is discovered in most of these classical domain names.

Example text

So in the object, what grounds the assertion of the predicate ‘beautiful’ are just those features that depend on the synthesizing activity of the subject. The Copernican revolution was a turn to the subjective conditions of cognition, and the judgment of taste considers the object just insofar as it relates to these subjective conditions. Since such judgments are not in the business of determining objective properties, they need to be accountable to some standard other than that of objective validity.

Collectively, these essays draw upon the texts, methods, and debates of both the continental and analytic philosophical traditions, and they situate Kant in the history of philosophy, not just as a respondent to the high rationalism and empiricism of the early modern era, but as a touchstone antecedent to Hegel, Schiller, Schopenhauer, Wittgenstein, Sellars, Gadamer, Foucault, Davidson, Goodman, and McDowell. They reveal Kant’s account of judgment, and the dialectics of aesthetics and cognition within that account, as profoundly relevant to contemporary debates in epistemology and philosophy of mind, and more narrowly to debates surrounding the nature of empirical experience and the metaphysics of normativity.

Instead, Kant holds them to the standard of subjective universality, or universal communicability, grounded in a common sense. But while such subjective universality may be a perfectly good standard for pure aesthetic judgment, it doesn’t seem to be an appropriate tribunal for cognitive judgments that are about and accountable to the objective world. Second, the suitability of the sensible world for being synthesized and grasped by our cognitive faculties now becomes contingent rather than transcendentally guaranteed.
