Example text

It must have the potential to operate in a Explanation of Aesthetic Judgment 51 way both natural to itself and adaptable to many different functions. All the bound functions of imagination amount to the constitution of particular forms and shapes. Thus if the activity of imagination develops freely, it will pass through manifolds in various ways and produce traces of forms without aiming at particular forms and without stopping when they have been attained. The "fantasia" in music is thus not by accident named after an employment of imagination that, according to Kant, has a cognitive analogue or foundation.

First, aesthetic judg111ents are and remain distinctive singular judgments; they can never be replaced by the application of descriptive concepts. Second and even more important, the situation in which they make sense doesn't include any comparison with other objects. But to compare is the first among the activities required for the formation of empirical concepts-according to Kant's teaching. The situation has begun to look very much like a dilemma. One of its horns prevents any recourse to the relationship between imagination and a priori concepts (the categories).

Concepts without intuitions are not only empty in the well- 48 I N T E R PRE TAT ION S known general sense of Kant's famous sentence, but also empty-or rather, not really in our possession-if we don't know how to apply them. But applying them means to be capable of producing instances of them in intuition. Instances can, to be sure, be produced in many ways; and the more abstract the concepts are the more difficult this will be. But Kant holds that ordinarily and ultimately instances have to be produced in intuition, whose unitary form is temporal and spatial.
