What is art? An imitation or a transformation or a knowledge of nature? What relationship do the arts have with beauty? How do we form aesthetic judgments? Some of these questions, and others concerning the artist and the work of art, go back to Plato and Aristotle, pass through Kant and Hegel, are taken up by Lukacs or Adorno. They lead to the heart of debates on modernity and the postmodern.
