David Carrier is an American philosopher and art and culture critic. He is a professor emeritus at Case Western Reserve Universityand was formerly a professor of philosophy at Carnegie Mellon University. He is the author of Principles of Art History Writing (Penn State University Press, 1991), The Aesthete in the City:The Philosophy and Practice of American Abstract Painting in the 1980s (Penn State University Press, 1994), High Art: Charles Baudelaire and the Origins of Modernist Painting (Penn State University Press, 1996), A World Art History and Its Objects (Penn State University Press, 2009), among others. He is a contributor to ArtForum, BOMB Magazine, and ArtUS. He has written about the history and philosophy of art writing, raising questions about the relativism of art writing in different eras by comparing texts written about the same artwork and analyzing changing styles of interpretation. Carrier received a Ph.D. in philosophy from Columbia University, where he was a student of Arthur Danto.



Kant’s Anarchist Aesthetics

In this lecture, David Carrier offers a historical analysis and defense of Kant’s aesthetics and politics, which are linked together, he observes, in ways that have not been adequately understood. Our present museum culture and the practice of art history fail to take account of the true nature of aesthetic judgments, as analyzed by Kant.
