Disinterestedness - Public - Public sphere - Autonomy - Freedom - Judging - Taste - Morality - Politics - The epistemology of autonomy - Disinterested delight as interest - The moral burden of cognition: Arendt's political reasoning - The inherent freedom of individual judgments of taste - Taste and politics - Moral character as the final framework of judgments of taste
This book analyzes how the public character of judgments of taste makes implicit statements in moral and political philosophy. The framework that relates aesthetic, moral, and political aspects into such a triadic relationship is an implicit conception of freedom. In «The Critique of Judgment» Kant elaborates the idea that judgments of taste can only exist where society exists. The author regards Friedrich Schiller's and Hannah Arendt's approaches on the normative resources of Kant's aesthetics for moral and political thought. He evaluates the discovery of the presence of a constant feature of Kant's conception of freedom in both his aesthetic and moral theory: freedom as autonomy.
