    The Six Faces of Beauty. Baumgarten on the Perfections of Knowledge in the Context of the German Enlightenment.Alessandro Nannini - 2020 - Archiv für Geschichte der Philosophie 102 (3):477-512.
    In this essay, I investigate Baumgarten’s doctrine of the six perfections of knowledge (wealth, magnitude, truth, clarity, certainty, and life), which is famously one of the most characteristic and enigmatic features of his philosophy. Recent scholarship has almost unanimously stressed the rhetorical background of the categories. Instead, I argue that Baumgarten elaborates his theory in close relationship with coeval philosophy. To support this claim, I examine the position of some Thomasian philosophers, such as Johann Liborius Zimmermann, who had indicated a (...)

    Impetus aestheticus. Baumgarten on Physics and Aesthetics.Alessandro Nannini - forthcoming - Perspectives on Science:1-71.
    In this essay, I analyze the role of physics in Baumgarten’s founding of aesthetics. After examining for the first time his courses on physics and their relationship with aesthetics, I explore the importance of physical metaphors in the issues of aesthetic experiments and aesthetic enthusiasm, with special regard to the influence of Bacon, Boyle, and Leibniz’s doctrine of vis viva.

    Transfiguration, Art, Pathicity. Somaesthetics Reconsidered.Alessandro Nannini - 2023 - Espes. The Slovak Journal of Aesthetics 12 (2):151-158.
    In this discussion piece, I will comment on the collective volume, edited by Jerold J. Abrams, Shusterman’s Somaesthetics. From Hip Hop Philosophy to Politics and Performance Art (2022). I will articulate my reflections around three main themes, which intersect the theme of several of the essays of the volume: I will first of all consider the concept of transfiguration, commenting upon the difference between Danto’s hermeneuticist perspective and Shusterman’s somaesthetic reinterpretation, with special regard to his performative experiment, the Man in (...)

    Baumgarten’s Diet: Physical Exercise, Health, and Beauty.Alessandro Nannini - 2023 - Aisthesis: Pratiche, Linguaggi E Saperi Dell’Estetico 15 (2):137-146.
    In this paper, I intend to analyze Baumgarten’s position about the dietetic care of the body in its relation to nascent aesthetics, with special regard to the problem of physical exercise. On the one hand, I will show that physical exercise can acquire aesthetic value with the example of the somatic fine arts. On the other hand, I will demonstrate that dietetics is also seminal for the emergence of every act of beautiful thinking. Eventually, I will bring to the fore (...)

    Critical Aesthetics. Baumgarten and the Logic of Taste.Alessandro Nannini - 2021 - Aesthetic Investigations 4 (2):201-218.
    In this essay, I discuss Baumgarten’s neglected doctrine of taste. In particular I investigate his definition of taste as the judgment of the senses against the backdrop of the philosophical debate of his day, pointing out the biblical and classical sources of the idea of a judging aisthesis. In addition, I analyse the radical change that the definition of taste as the judgment of the senses brings about in the idea of both taste and the judgment of the senses with (...)

    From the Density of Sense to the Density of the Sensible. The Emergenceof Aesthetic Pregnancy from the Spirit of Hermeneutics.Alessandro Nannini - 2020 - Archiv für Begriffsgeschichte 60:163-186.
    Although pregnancy as a semantic and perceptual density is a central notion of aesthetics, scholarship has not yet conducted a genealogical inquiry into its early-modern roots. It is the aim of this investigation to make a contribu-tion in this direction. My thesis is, that the idea of aesthetic pregnancy emerges in Alexander G. Baumgarten’s philoso-phy as the outcome of the convergence between Leibnizian assumptions and a series of hermeneutical categories, which have hitherto been overlooked. After analyzing the role of pregnancy (...)

    Somaesthetics in Baumgarten? The Founding of Aesthetics and the Body.Alessandro Nannini - forthcoming - Estetika: The European Journal of Aesthetics 59 (2):103-118.
    In the presentation of his project about ‘somaesthetics’, Richard Shusterman claimed that the recurring neglect of the body in aesthetics was disastrously introduced by Alexander Gottlieb Baumgarten (1714–1762) in his first formulation of aesthetics as a discipline in the mid-eighteenth century. In the present essay I aim to call this thesis into question, investigating for the first time the role of the body in Baumgarten’s thought and focusing on its significance for the founding of aesthetics. First, I consider Baumgarten’s doctrine (...)

    The veil of the body. Emotions and expressive mimesis in Johann Jakob Engel’s aesthetic thought.Alessandro Nannini - 2018 - Itinera 15.
    In the present article, I intend to examine the importance of Engel’s mimicry for the corporeal visualization of affects, showing the links with its roots in the early German Enlightenment. If the body serves as a picture of the soul, the aim of this essay is to understand how Engel’s mimicry turns this correspondence to its own purpose, enhancing its role as a privileged observatory of the human mind as well as a building site of a historical form of humanity.
