Kant on beauty and morality

Kant-Studien 95 (3):338-354 (2004)
The purpose of this paper is to give an interpretation of what Kant takes to be the moral importance of aesthetic experience. On my interpretation aesthetic experience pleases since, in general, it is the experience of our finding an object first the aim of our reflective judging efforts. However, satisfying such an aim only makes sense within Kant's further account of beauty as the expression of aesthetic ideas. In the end I hold that on Kant's account it is only because beauty can express aesthetic ideas that aesthetic experience can be of moral importance
