Hegel, Romantic Art, and the Unfinished Task of the Poetic Word

In Charles Bambach & Theodore George (eds.), Philosophers and their Poets: Reflections on the Poetic Turn in Philosophy Since Kant. Albany, NY, USA: pp. 65-83 (2019)

This chapter focuses on Hegel's important but underappreciated conception of romantic art. The author argues that for Hegel, art is a work of language. Whereas Hegel believes classical art is a work of language that serves as a foundation of society, however, romantic art provides what the author refers to as a supplement.
