Comic Book Kant

December 1, 2009by

While I don’t think it beats sitting down for an afternoon with the Critique of Judgment and a shot of espresso, Douglas Wolk has found an engaging way to use comics to illustrate the central principles in Immanuel Kant’s “Critique of Aesthetic Judgment”.

Ignite is a conference hosted in various cities worldwide, for which presenters funnel their ideas into an intriguing format of 20 slides and 5 minutes.

For students of art, this part of Kant’s third critique has been immensely influential in the fields of aesthetics and art criticism. You can find it in various forms online for free.
