Blog de Valérie Marchand, professeur de philosophie au lycée Fustel de Coulanges (Massy) Existentialist Aesthetics First published Fri Jun 26, 2009 Many of the philosophers commonly described as “existentialist” have made original and decisive contributions to aesthetic thinking. In most cases, a substantial involvement in artistic practice (as novelists, playwrights or musicians) nourished their thinking on aesthetic experience. This is true already of two of the major philosophers who inspired 20th century existentialism: Søren Kierkegaard and Friedrich Nietzsche. Existentialism owes its name to its emphasis on “existence”. This ontological aspect of existentialism ties it to aesthetic considerations. This ontological approach to art underpins some of the most distinctive features of existentialist aesthetics. Some of the existentialists wrote substantial analyses about different art forms and how they can be compared, elaborating something like a “system of the arts” similar to that of classical aesthetics. 1.

Biblioteca di Filosofia (en italien) Apprendre la Philosophie Empedocles Empedocles (/ɛmˈpɛdəkliːz/; Ancient Greek: Ἐμπεδοκλῆς; Empedoklēs; Ancient Greek: [empedoklɛ̂ːs]; c. 490 – 430 BC) was a Greek pre-Socratic philosopher and a citizen of Agrigentum, a Greek city in Sicily. Empedocles' philosophy is best known for being the originator of the cosmogenic theory of the four Classical elements. He also proposed powers called Love and Strife which would act as forces to bring about the mixture and separation of the elements. These physical speculations were part of a history of the universe which also dealt with the origin and development of life. Influenced by the Pythagoreans, he supported the doctrine of reincarnation. Empedocles is generally considered the last Greek philosopher to record his ideas in verse. Life[edit] The temple of Hera at Agrigentum, built when Empedocles was a young man, c. 470 BC. Empedocles was born, c. 490 BC, at Agrigentum (Acragas) in Sicily to a distinguished family.[2] Very little is known about his life. Works[edit]
