Example text

Philosophical reflection on art has been replaced more and more by research in media studies and semiotic or symbolic theories. This has gone hand in hand with a relativization of the art-character of art; one inquires less about this character than about the medial or symbolic form of text and image—aspects not limited to art alone. Inquiries of this kind are no doubt justified; they can even be immensely fruitful. Yet they do not put to rest the question concerning the essence of art. In an image that is a work of art, its image-character is more distinct and clear; a poetic text is more able to be experienced as a text than an arbitrary piece of writing, and the experience of hearing a musical work of art could not be replaced even by the most successful of popular music pieces.

Because of its independence from science, philosophy is also not threatened by the fact that sciences make claims to clarify matters that have traditionally belonged solely to philosophy. Philosophy need not be a science in order to maintain its justification in the face of science. But for this, it does need to reflect upon its theoretical essence. Theory in the philosophical sense does not compete with science; it therefore need not capitulate before a successful science. Philosophy need not explain or provide a foundation.

It belongs to the self-showing of artworks that they are recognizable as artworks. One generally sees a picture that is a work of art as a picture; one does not take a novel to be a report of an actual course of events; an aria is not the expression of actually perceived joy or actually perceived pain. This recognizability of artworks has to do with their forms. Artworks show themselves and show in forms of art that are, as such, forms of appearance. The third chapter of the investigation is dedicated to these forms of art.
