Abstract:

This is a comprehensive, integrated account of eighteenth and early nineteenth century German figurative aesthetics. The author focuses on the theologically-minded discourse on the visual arts that unfolded in Germany, circa 1754-1828, to critique the assumption that German romanticism and idealism pursued a formalist worship of beauty and of unbridled artistic autonomy. This book foregrounds what the author terms an ℓ́ℓAesthetics of Figurative Theo humanismℓ́ℓ. It begins with the sculptural aesthetics of Johann Joachim Winckelmann and Gottfried Herder before moving on to Karl Philipp Moritz, Wilhelm Heinrich Wackenroder and Friedrich Schelling. The reader will discover how this aesthetic tradition, after an initial obsession with classical sculpture, chose painting as the medium more suited to the modern selfℓ́ℓs exploration of transcendence. This paradigm-shift is traced in the aesthetic discourse of Friedrich Schlegel and Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel. In this work, the widespread prejudice that such aesthetics initiated a so-called ℓ́ℓModern Grand Narrative of the Artsℓ́ℓ is deconstructed. One accusation directed at 18th century aesthetics has been that it realised into ℓ́ℓArtℓ́ℓ what had previously been a living, rich tissue of meaning: this work shows how Figurative Theo humanism's attention to aesthetic values was never detached from deeper theological and humanistic considerations. Furthermore, it argues that this aesthetic discourse never forgot that it emerged from modern disenchantmentℓ́ℓfar from occluding the dimension of secularization, it draws poignant meaning from it. Anyone with an interest in the current debates about the℗ℓscope and nature of aesthetics (philosophers of art, theology, or religion) will find this book of great interest and assistance.
