Before 1790: The Origins of Kant's Aesthetics

This project explores the development and sources of Kant’s aesthetics by looking at his anthropology and logic lectures. It also explores how his earlier ideas might contribute to recent work on topics such as aesthetic judgment, the fine arts, the sublime, disgust, and humor. This grant will support summer research in preparation for a trip to archives in Germany.
