In this original exploration of the Critique of Judgment, Pradeep Dhillon advances this link and demonstrates the contemporary importance of Kants theory, not only within philosophical aesthetics and aesthetic education, but to education itself.With educational concerns at the core of her analysis, Dhillon examines Kants argument for making room for judgment in human affairs, shows how judgment serves to link knowledge to ethics and discusses the relation between aesthetics, art, and the faculty of judgment. Following Kants theory of judgment as it moves from the creation of artworks to unique instances of judgment, Dhillon explores ways to develop and refine the power of judgment and represents acts of judging in light of Kants theory. Kant: The Art of Judgment in Aesthetic Education is the first systematic treatment of what Kants theory of judgment means for all fields of learning, making it an important contribution to studies of aesthetics in both humanistic research and educational scholarship.
