Abstract:
In this thesis I investigate the political significance of the aesthetic domain. I hope to show that it is not despite but because of its autonomy that the aesthetic realm is to be credited with political importance. I argue that the aesthetic sphere - both in the kind of judgment characteristic thereof and in the the experience of autonomous art - has a distinctive capacity to influence forms of of judgment and action characteristic of politics.
