These are evidently not purely aesthetic terms, because of their further uses, but they are still very relevant to many aesthetic experiences. High art beat popular art, Hauser said, because of two things: the significance of its content, and the more creative nature of its forms. His full analysis, however, contained another aspect, since he was not only concerned with the sorts of concepts mentioned above, but also with a set of others which had a rather different character. This is because the absence of bodily solidity and the presence of color allow the more inward spirituality of the Christian world to manifest itself as such.

But even if one cannot, there remain the different histories of the original and the copy, and also the different intentions behind them. It is for this reason, in Hegel's view, that art in the modern age no longer meets our highest needs and no longer affords us the satisfaction that it gave to earlier cultures and civilizations. Art is there not just for art's sake, but for beauty's sake, that is, for the sake of a distinctively sensuous form of human self-expression and self-understanding. Artistic objects and performances satisfy rules of composition that place them in a recognizable style.

I loved the decor and general feeling of the place from the moment I walked in. Colors and sounds by themselves can certainly communicate a mood, but only the human form actually embodies spirit and reason. Kant observed of a man "If he says that canary wine is agreeable he is quite content if someone else corrects his terms and reminds him to say instead: It is agreeable to me," because "Everyone has his own sense of taste ". Modern aestheticians have asserted that will and desire were almost dormant in aesthetic experience, yet preference and choice have seemed important aesthetics to some 20th-century thinkers. Light is thus the substance in all things and that which gives life to all plants and animals. Such an individual must not be abstract and formal as, for example, in the early Greek Geometric stylenor should he be static and rigid as in much ancient Egyptian sculpturebut his body and posture should be visibly animated by freedom and life, without, however, sacrificing the stillness and serenity that belongs to ideal self-containment.

While there have been empirical studies of aesthetic experience exercises in the psychology of beautythese form no part of aesthetics as considered in this article. This is the art of poetry Poesie in the broad sense of the term.

This means that the basic shape of the temple should contain only those features that are needed to fulfill its purpose. Now, he never denied Aesthetics book paintings could be representational, he just said that it was irrelevant to its status as a painting — painting qua painting, as someone might put it.

People who are sad move more slowly, and when they speak they speak softly and low. High art beat popular art, Hauser said, because of two things: the significance of its content, and the more creative nature of its forms.

Indeed, Hegel argues that painting—in contrast to sculpture, which excels in presenting independent, free-standing individuals—is altogether more suited to showing human beings in their relations both to their environment and to one another: hence the prominence in painting of, for example, depictions of the love between the Virgin Mary and the Christ child.

Creation is not a process, but a public achievement: it is a matter of breaking the tape ahead of others in a certain race. Art is not the only object to draw interest of this pleasurable kind: hobbies and travel are further examples, and sport yet another, as was mentioned briefly above.

This does not, however, make architecture any less necessary as a part of our aesthetic and religious life. Hegel considers a relatively small range of buildings: he says almost nothing, for example, about secular buildings.

Note that what interests us about such individuals is not any moral purpose that they may have, but simply the energy and self-determination and often ruthlessness that they exhibit.

Love my results, totally worth the hour drive! There is a famous curve, for instance, obtained by the nineteenth century psychologist Wilhelm Wundt, which shows how human arousal is quite generally related to complexity of stimulus.

Reason, or the Idea, comes to be fully self-determining and rational, therefore, when it takes the form of self-conscious spirit. What is Art? Marie V. They have thus taken modern art in a direction in which, from a Hegelian perspective, it has ceased to be art in the true sense any longer.
