Aesthetics: Volume 1
Clarendon Press (1998)
This is the first of two volumes of the only English edition of Hegel's Aesthetics, in which he gives full expression to his seminal theory of art. The substantial Introduction is his best exposition of his general philosophy of art. In Part I he considers the general nature of art as a spiritual experience, distinguishes the beauty of art and the beauty of nature, and examines artistic genius and originality. Part II surveys the history of art from the ancient world through to the end of the eighteenth century, probing the meaning and significance of major works. Part III deals individually with architecture, sculpture, painting, music, and literature; a rich array of examples makes vivid his exposition of his theory
