A viral Books Introductory Lectures on Aesthetics In his lectures on aesthetics, Hegel attempts to formulate a theory of the fine arts that will place them within the paradigm of his wider philosophy of history. Art, he says, is on the decline, but this is not altogether a bad thing as it is an indication of the increasing centrality of the mind in a purer form. The movement of the spirit, he says, has led us to an epoch in which is it is no longer necessary as it once was to embody our thoughts within the material order. While it would be difficult to buy into Hegel's philosophy art without having already bought into the larger body of his philosophy as a whole, his lectures are interesting fuel for thought on the nature of art and the relationship of the fine arts to human thought, emotion, and the need for creative expression.
