The Arts of the Beautiful

Scholarly Series
Etienne Gilson

With his usual lucidity, Etienne Gilson addresses the idea that “art is the making of beauty for beauty’s own sake.” By distinguishing between aesthetics, which promotes art as a form of knowledge, and philosophy, which focuses on the presence of the artist’s own talent or genius, Gilson maintains that art belongs to a different category entirely, the category of “making.” Gilson’s intellectually stimulating meditation on the relation of beauty and art is indispensable to philosophers and artists alike.
