A sentence-by-sentence interpretation of Kant's Critique of Judgment, sections 23-25.
In episode 105, we explained Kant's account of how we recognize beauty and and in episode 107, we presented the view of one of Kant's influences, Edmund Burke, on the difference between recognizing beauty and experiencing something as sublime. Read more about it and listen to a sample.
With this reading, we learn what Kant's view on the sublime is and help you to understand Kant's thicket of terminology. Close Readings let you share in the experience of decoding a difficult text; you can use these skills to increase your confidence in attacking the text of your choice.
