Abstract


Everyday life and contemporary culture experience a high degree of aesthetization that would seem to malee art superfluous. The present paper responds to this problem and raises the question of the function of art in modern society, illustrating the discussion by means of several theses, proposed by W. Welsch, R. Bubner, J. Ritter, O. Marquard and K. Konig. The paper favors Marquard's thesis, defending an aesthetic art as opposed to an eschatological one. Only aesthetic art as an "organon" of experience is capable of compensating for the loss of perception, of autonomous judgment, and for the fiction that creates the power of mass media in today's culture. Eschatological art, as an "organon" of the idea, on the contrary, becomes an accomplice of the cultural perversion mentioned.
