    1 thought on “Feeling and Form”

    1. “The function of artistic illusion is not ‘make-believe’, as many philosophers and psychologists assume, but the very opposite, disengagement from belief - the contemplation of sensory qualities without their usual meanings…” A dense read, but an important discourse on aesthetic philosophy and ideas of art and symbolism. Will be reading the more popular 'Philosophy in a New Key' to follow.

    2. Definitely one of the most challenging things I've read, but it also lead to some of the best discussions about the nature of art and the aesthetic emotion that I've ever had.

    3. "Herein lies the 'strangeness' or 'otherness' that characterizes an artistic object. The form is immediately given to perception, and yet it reaches beyond itself; it is semblance, but seems to be charged with reality. Like speech, that is physically nothing but little buzzing sounds, it is filled with its meaning, and its meaning is a reality." - p 52"People who are so concerned for their children's scientific enlightenment that they keep Grimm out of the library and Santa Claus out of the chim [...]

    4. This isn't only the best philosophical writing about art that I have ever read, it is the only philosophical investigation of the arts that I have found at all interesting. Langer, building on her earlier work, Philosophy in a New Key, analyzes all of the arts, saying on the one hand that each is distinct, but that all share some basic attributes, and that these are universal across culture and time. Each art is a virtual reality, and each art is based non-discursive symbolism, which is in turn [...]

    5. "Envisagement" surfaces often in this book; "envisionment" rarely so. Here in lies the problem with so brillant a mind as philsoopher Susanne Langer. Langer has complex strings of adjectives, ideas and theory. But the format and writing style turned me off as a reader. If the writing were wound up in a concise, orderly matter, or even a brillant illuminating artistic manner, this book would really be something. But Langer is joyful in her own musings. Any welcoming or contextualizing to readers [...]

    6. I read this in graduate school, and more than anything else that I have read, it helped me to understand what art is and how it works. I don't just mean visual art either - all the arts. This really should be required reading for any educated reader with the passion for the arts. I would gladly buy it again if someone offers it at a reasonable price.
