Aesthetic Theory


Aesthetic Theory. Edited by: Zanetti, Sandro; Sasse, Sylvia; Mersch, Dieter (2019). Zürich: Diaphanes.

Abstract

There is no theory that is not aesthetic in a certain way. Adorno, too, did not understand his aesthetic theory simply as a theory of the aesthetic, but was aware of the aesthetic implications of theory. At the same time we have to do with aesthetic objects and events in which an aesthetic theory is inherent, which show themselves as art. So from both sides—theory and aesthetics—a link can be made to the etymological meaning of θεωρία (theōria), which understands the theoretical as a seeing or perspective. The book examines this link and simultaneity, focusing equally on the aesthetic implications of theory and the theoretical implications of aesthetic events.
