Abstract and Keywords

Philosophy has not had a great deal to say about sculpture. There is brief mention of it in Kant's third critique, and there is longer discussion in Schopenhauer (1969) and Hegel (1974). More recent writing with philosophical content is as often to be found in the output of theoretically minded critics and art historians as in that of professional philosophers. Nonetheless, sculpture does present genuine philosophical problems. This article concentrates on the aesthetic question of sculpture, and says a little about sculptural representation.

Keywords: sculpture, Kant, philosophical problems, sculptural representation, aesthetics
