    The Oxford Handbook of Schopenhauer.Robert L. Wicks (ed.) - 2020 - New York, NY: Oxford University Press, Usa.
    More than two hundred years after the publication of his seminal The World as Will and Representation, Arthur Schopenhauer's influence is still felt in philosophy and beyond. As one of the most readable and central philosophers of the 19th century, his work inspired the most influential thinkers and artists of his time, including Nietzsche, Freud, and Wagner. Though known primarily as a herald of philosophical pessimism, the full range of his contributions is displayed here in a collection of thirty-one essays (...)

  8. Kant on fine art: Artistic sublimity shaped by beauty.Robert Wicks - 1995 - Journal of Aesthetics and Art Criticism 53 (2):189-193.
    This essay critically examines the view recently set forth by Paul Guyer that Kant's theories of artistic beauty and artistic creativity exclusively coincide with this theory of natural beauty. I note that very great works of art, although they may indeed be beautiful, also tend to be sublime. To acknowledge the sense of awe which attends those great works of art which are also beautiful, I argue that Kant's theory of sublimity must also be included within an accurate interpretation of (...)

  9. Schopenhauer's the World as Will and Representation: A Reader's Guide.Robert L. Wicks - 2011 - Continuum.
    Schopenhauer's The World as Will and Representation is widely considered to be one fo the most important and influential texts in nineteenth-century German philosophy. The text provides an avenue through which to introduce and explore a rich assortment of philosophical themes and questions, and represents Schopenhauer's widely discussed attempt to find personal meaning amidst a violent, frustrating and seemingly godless world. Since it was published in 1818, the text has influenced generations of musicians, artists, writers and historians, as well as (...)

Specifically we read that traditional Japanese aesthetics is an aesthetics of imperfection, (...)
