Sample text

But that Being, beyond the Eleatic congelation, now knows how to rediscover itself in the world of relations too: as a relation to self and leading to an “absolute” judgement, by which the field of relations possible in principle terminates, must terminate. We are now at the final group of the categories of criticism, those depending on the “heading” modality. Kant will tell us that it expresses a function wholly particular to the judgements. The groups up to now – quantity, quality and relation – regarded the content of the judgements and exhausted it, in its formal respect, of course.

This is why rhythm of any kind, rhythm as a pre-established order, is one of the fundamental techniques of the beautiful. From the elementary rhythm of primitives to the superior rhythm of the harmony of colours or ideas, the aesthetic act is engrafted onto rhythm as onto a necessary order, in the margins of which the freedom to create becomes possible. The tension between freedom and necessity, more so than unity in diversity, as has been said of the aesthetic act, seems to provide the latter with its measure.

The term “limitation” taken in itself is therefore not wholly adequate, as it expresses only restriction, but not the persistence of the whole, in spite of it. What determines Kant to adopt the term is perhaps the tendency (one that is disputable, as we shall attempt to demonstrate below) subsequently to make it, as a third term, a “synthesis” between reality and negation. Likewise, he will of course have arrived at the idea of “infinite” judgement in seeking a judgement that would be simultaneously affirmative and negative, in accordance with the two he found in general logic.
