Kant: The art of judgment in aesthetic education

Pradeep Ajit Dhillon

Research output: Book/Report/Conference proceedingBook


Towards the end of the third critique, Kant begins to develop the link between education and his theory of judgment. In this original exploration of the 'Critique of Judgment', Pradeep Dhillon advances this link and demonstrates the contemporary importance of Kant's theory, not only within philosophical aesthetics and aesthetic education, but to education itself. With educational concerns at the core of her analysis, Dhillon examines Kant's argument for making room for judgment in human affairs, shows how judgment serves to link knowledge to ethics and discusses the relation between aesthetics, art, and the faculty of judgment. Following Kant's theory of judgment as it moves from the creation of artworks to unique instances of judgment, Dhillon explores ways to develop and refine the power of judgment and represents acts of judging in light of Kant's theory.
