Not as great as its "older brother" the First Critique (the Critique of Pure Reason), but an interesting book nonetheless and one which presents the strongest imaginable rebuttal to the idea that "good taste is subjective". ( )

Med "Kritikk av dømmekraften" avslutter Kant (1724-1804) sitt kritiske prosjekt. Den tredje kritikken danner et bindeledd mellom hans erkjennelseslære og moralfilosofi, og tar for seg dømmekraftens bruk i kunst og vitenskap. I de to første kritikkene trakk han opp fornuftens formale grenser. Det er verkets første del, "Kritikk av den estetiske dømmekraft", som er oversatt her. Der fremsetter Kant sin estetikk.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0872200256, Paperback)

In THE CRITIQUE OF JUDGMENT (1790), Immanuel Kant (1724-1804) seeks to establish the a priori principles underlying the faculty of judgement, just as he did in his previous critiques of pure and practical reason. The first part deals with the subject of our aesthetic sensibility; we respond to certain natural phenomena as beautiful, says Kant, when we recognise in nature a harmonious order that satisfies the mind's own need for order. The second half of the critique concentrates on the apparent teleology in nature's design of organisms. Kant argues that our minds are inclined to see purpose and order in nature and this is the main principle underlying all of our judgements. Although this might imply a super sensible Designer, Kant insists that we cannot prove a supernatural dimension or the existence of God. Such considerations are beyond reason and are solely the province of faith.

This 1790 polemic by one of philosophy's most important and influential figures attempts to establish the principles that support the faculty of judgment. Kant's third critique--after Critique of Practical Reason and Critique of Pure Reason--remains one of the most important works on human reason. The Critique of Judgment informs the very basis of modern aesthetics by establishing the almost universally accepted framework for debate of aesthetic issues. As in his previous critiques, Kant seeks to establish a priori principles. The first part of this work addresses aesthetic sensibility. The human response to specific natural phenomena as beautiful, he asserts, is a recognition of nature's harmonious order that corresponds to a mental need for order. The critique's second half focuses on the apparent teleology in nature's design of organisms. The philosopher declares that the mind is predisposed to find purpose and order in nature, and this predisposition forms the main principle underlying all our judgments. Although this could be interpreted as an argument in favor of a creator, Kant insists that a supernatural dimension or the existence of God cannot be proven--such considerations lie beyond the realm of reason, solely within the province of faith.… (more)
