Abstract:
The Hegelian inheritance underwriting Walter Pater's aestheticism has long been acknowledged. According to this traditional criticism, there are two distinct readings of Hegel undertaken by Pater: an initial reaction against Hegel and a subsequent 'reconsideration' of his aestheticism. But what has been missed is a-third distinct reading, identifying a 'radical dualism' disrupting the foundations of the Hegelian dialectic.
