Carsten Strathausen

University of Minnesota Press

The first chapter on “Human Nature After Kant” traces the beginnings of bio-aesthetics back to 18th century scientific theories about the nature of life, in particular the long-lasting debate of preformationism versus epigenesis that influenced Kant’s aesthetic theory in the Third Critique, a foundational text in the history of modern aesthetics.
