Summary/Abstract: The article goes beyond Kant’s well-known aesthetic formalism in order to gain insight into the meaning of the peculiar phrase “splendid misery” employed in the Critique of Judgment, §83, and elsewhere. The author discusses Kant’s notion of the culture of taste, his assimilation of Rousseau’s social critique into aesthetics, and the historical-materialist background of Kant’s theory.
