At the heart of Hegel’s Aesthetics is the idea of the beautiful as unity. This unity turns fragile once the mind’s self-awareness becomes conceptual and extends beyond sensory illusion. Focusing the philosophy of art on the idea of the beautiful raises a set of systematic problems, which are discussed with regard to Hegel’s Aesthetics, its historical contexts, and its reception.
