Aesthetics After Metaphysics: From Mimesis to Metaphor by Miguel Beistegui

By Miguel Beistegui

De Beistegui refers to this size, which unfolds outdoor the gap that stretches among the practical and the supersensible – the distance of metaphysics itself – because the hypersensible and express how the operation of paintings to which it corresponds is better defined as metaphorical. The flow of the booklet, then, is from the classical or metaphysical aesthetics of mimesis (Part One) to the aesthetics of the hypersensible and metaphor (Part Two). opposed to a lot of the heritage of aesthetics and the metaphysical discourse on artwork, he argues that the philosophical worth of paintings doesn’t consist in its skill to bridge the gap among the practical and the supersensible, or the picture and the belief, and display the practical as proto-conceptual, yet to open up a special feel of the practical. His target, then, is to shift the place and role that philosophy attributes to artwork.
