A new look at Kant's theory of pleasure

Journal of Aesthetics and Art Criticism 60 (3):239–252 (2002)
I argue (contra Guyer et al.) that in the Critique of Judgment Kant espouses a formal, intentional theory of pleasure, and reconstruct Kant's arguments that this view can both identify what all pleasures have in common, and differentiate among kinds of pleasure. Through his investigation of aesthetic experience in the Critique of Judgment, I argue, Kant radically departs from his views about pleasure as mere sensation in the Groundwork and the Critique of Practical Reason, and provides a view of pleasure whereby we can understand pleasure itself to be ruled by an a priori principle.
