SPONTANEOUS PLAY BASED ON RULES. ON THE MARGINS OF KANTIAN CRITIQUE OF JUDGEMENT (Swobodna gra oparta na prawidlach. Na marginesie Kantowskiej Krytyki wladzy sadzenia)
Languages of publication
The proposed analysis of Kant's system of aesthetic judgements builds upon the metaphor of play, based on the binary opposition of laws and freedom. Drawing upon the dualism of human actions, reflected in the tendency to develop both open and closed systems, Kant's analysis of the faculty of judgment focuses on the opposition of two pervading elements: freedom and order. Aesthetic and moral judgments are represented by the play model, which is a system based on arbitrary decisions, limited, however, by a superior network of rules. Therefore, the play is a system in which the duty to obey the rules coexists with the necessity to freely choose the strategy of one's decisions. The category of the play is further employed to reflect upon Kantian notions of the genius, the sublime, and the work of art that induce the free play of the cognitive faculties.
