Summary
"The Aesthetics of Hegel is a voluminous treatise, and more easy of comprehension than any other of his works. Its appearance began a new era in Art criticism, and it has been the mine from which many subsequent writers have drawn their treasures. The object of this book is to reproduce its essential thought, especially from the philosophic standpoint. Some endeavour to master the key--Hegel's philosophy of the Idea--is needful for its complete application in following his treatment of the several arts. The work is divided into three parts. The first, which gives the fundamental philosophy of the whole, is here reproduced faithfully, though in a condensed form, with criticisms of the present author interspersed. Of the second part, which traces the logical and historical development of the Art-impulse, there is an excellent translation easily accessible. I have thought it best, therefore, to substitute here, an original disquisition, in language approaching nearer the vernacular, and with more immediate regard to present Aesthetic problems; yet following also the pathway marked out by Hegel, and giving the substance of his thought. Of the third part, which is larger than both the others combined, being the treatment of all the Arts in detail, I have given all the important definitions and fundamental ideas, omitting, as was needful, the minute illustrations of the same, and the properly technical part, which, too, can be found elsewhere"--Preface.
