Hegel remarks that “art, considered in its highest vocation, is and remains for us a thing of the past” (Aesthetics, §1). What does Hegel mean by this claim? What is the role of a philosophy of art in the modern world? Do you agree with Hegel’s view?
A critical reflection on Hegel’s ‘Aesthetics’ as per the topic.
