Summary
"There are three ways in which ideas preeminently manifest themselves as living powers in the practical life of mankind, namely: in Art, in Ethics, and in Religion. To the province of Art belong, generally, those productions of the imagination which are capable of calling forth the sentiment or emotion of the beautiful; to that of Ethics, the striving of the individual will after worth and dignity of character, of communities of men after the right organization of society, and of a state after its true constitution; and to that of Religion, the striving after the restoration of that fellowship with God and harmony with nature which alone can place man in the position he was originally destined to occupy. Art is the subject I propose to treat of in the following pages. The general subject, therefore, is Art; not, however, in the restricted and limited sense in which this word is very commonly understood. The Art which I wish to consider embraces whatever works--whether they be the works of Nature, or of man; and whether of the common man, or of the man of genius--excite the imagination to that peculiar kind of activity which is the necessary condition of our perception of the beautiful"--Chapter.
