    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, 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 list of criteria similar to that of (...)

    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 (...)

    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.
