Dufrenne e gli esiti dell’estetica fenomenologica

Elio Franzini


This article discusses Mikel Dufrenne’s view presented in his work: the aesthetic experience is a fundamental aspect of hu-man existence, which is valuable in its own right because it conveys truth. According to Dufrenne, truth is a meaning that illuminates the real. The expressed meaning of the aesthetic object is such an illumination, and it can be described as being structured by an a priori principle. Finally, I present the pheno-menological approaches to aesthetic meaning, and discuss their merits in light of Dufrenne’s theory, and briefly propose how it can be relevant for further work between art theory and philosophical aesthetics.
