THE CONCEPT OF GENIUS IN IMMANUEL KANT AND ARTUR SCHOPENHAUER ESTHETIC REFLECTIONS
Languages of publication
The article compares concepts of genius in esthetic reflections of Immanuel Kant and Arthur Schopenhauer. According to Kant’s views included mainly in Critique of Judgment a brilliant man creates work of arts inspired by the nature. In Schopenhauer philosophy, though, nature and perception do not play such important role in creation. More crucial is human being and his imagination. A genius creates each of his work from the beginning. The most perfect of them are created through inspiration. They emerge without intention or contemplation. Genius, according to Schopenhauer, does not seek inspiration as it come to him itself.
