The Dangers of Aestheticism in Schooling.
Meager, Ruby
Journal of Philosophy of Education, v15 n1 p23-31 1981
Prompted by Immanuel Kant's analysis of the nature and operations of the imagination in his "Critique of the Aesthetical Judgment," this article points out the danger of encouraging imagination-borne aesthetical judgments and explanatory hypotheses. Concludes that understanding requires submission to more stringent standards of objectivity and to the need to learn a great deal of accumulated fact. (DB)
