Sample text

I value the experience, and I see no reason to deny that it is an aesthetic experience. But it does not lead me to value the hymn. All this might be expected, with regard for the hymn not artistic appreciation: indeed, Sharpe’s formulation here seems exact—that he does not value the hymn, does not take pleasure or delight in its features. As it were, his valuing of the experience would be spoilt were he required to pay close attention to the hymn itself, with all its mawkishness. So, although this is an object with meaning, its meaning is not relevant to Sharpe’s regard for it.

17. The use of an open-textured concept “was always corrigible or emendable” (Waismann, 1968: 42) 18. Although the fourth edition of PI (Wittgenstein, 2009) differs from some others in its translation of remarks, it has not been used here: however, its treatment of (the former) Part Two as a separate work is respected when relevant. Chapter 2 Art, Meaning and Occasion-Sensitivity In Chapter 1, the contrast between the artistic and the aesthetic was assumed, while trying to motivate it.

Rectified for the artistic/aesthetic contrast: see also McFee (1997: 31–46). Examples from Wollheim (1993a: 173). This is the ‘Moore than a meteorite’ discussion in Ground (1989: 26). See Chapter 2: and Travis (1997, 2008: 94–108; 109–129).
