Uncovering the aesthetic character of the city as a landscape: Urban life in after Kant's aesthetics of the 21st century
The contribution has several aims. In addition to the discussion that follows variability of the concept of landscape and its relationship to the category of environment (particularly with regard to the urban environment, where it appears the concept of environment as a more adequate) the contibution focuses on the specific problem of the current aesthetics: transformation of aesthetic reflection of the city as a whole, which is realized by the contemporary aesthetics and philosophy through the Kantian aesthetics in Critique of Aesthetics Judgement. Elaboration of opinions of Marie Rubene and Miroslav Marcelli leads us not only to summarize the conclusions of recent theses, but further to reflect the transformation of (mega)city to a country, specific environment free from original effectiveness, where "human returns to natural and becomes a sort of huge subject, which is fluid in its inside ..."). Reflection is primarily guided by the category of sublime as an explanatory framework.
