Example text

On the other hand, his account of the nature of intellect and its relation to the individual will apparently pushes him to the claim that this ‘power’ can occur ‘only by way of exception, in genius’ (WWR II: 292). Aesthetic Experience in Schopenhauer’s Metaphysics of Will 33 Before concluding that Schopenhauer’s aesthetic theory and philosophy of art are indeed inconsistent with his metaphysics of intellect and will, however, we must consider whether there is anything further to be said—anything more than Schopenhauer himself says—on his behalf.

What makes one grade of the Will’s objectification—one Idea—‘higher’ than another? Schopenhauer’s suggestion is that in a higher grade, the character of the Will is more adequately expressed, more ‘visible’ (WWR I: 128), than it is in a lower grade of objectification. The inference that the Will strives for ever higher objectification, then, is in effect the inference that the Will strives for forms of objectification that increasingly adequately express or reveal or make visible its character.
