Download Die fremdartige Idee des Schönen (Passagen forum) (German by François Jullien,Peter Engelmann,Christian Leitner PDF

By François Jullien,Peter Engelmann,Christian Leitner

Im Lauf der Jahrhunderte hat guy immer wieder die Kriterien und Konzeptionen des Schönen in Frage gestellt, seine Definition unterlag einem fortwährenden Wandel. Doch hat guy dabei auch jene in der Sprache verankerte Vorbedingung bedacht, nämlich überhaupt "das Schöne" sagen zu können? Als Angelpunkt unserer Metaphysik lehrt uns das Schöne, die Vielfalt des Sinnlichen zugunsten der Einheitlichkeit einer "Idee" aufzugeben. Das Schöne bestürzt und bewegt uns, indem es als Absolutes ins Sichtbare einbricht; zugleich ist es der letzte Erlösungsweg, der uns nach dem Tod der Götter noch bleibt. Das chinesische Denken freilich hat nie "das Schöne" abstrahiert und isoliert. In der Herausarbeitung dieses Unterschiedes sucht François Jullien Möglichkeiten freizulegen, die sich nicht dem Monopol des Schönen unterordnen; der zeitgenössischen Kunst, im Krieg mit dem Schönen befindlich, neue und fruchtbare Wege zu eröffnen. Das Schöne wird von erschöpfenden Gemeinplätzen befreit: um es in seiner Fremdartigkeit wiederherzustellen.
