Given his intention to link beauty and morality – beauty is a symbol of morality for Kant – his suspicion of music follows from the aims of the third Critique. However, even though the idea of aesthetic autonomy is not part of the argument of the CJ, the CJ does help open up the possibility of its emergence. Kant’s aesthetic ideas are non-conceptual, but this does not exclude them from consideration in philosophy: instead, they ‘strive towards something beyond the boundary of experience’ (B p. 194, A p.
As we shall see in a moment, Kant insists that in art it is the other way round: nature gives the law to us (via the genius), so that ‘beautiful art is an art insofar as it at the same time appears to be nature’ (CJ B p. 179, A p. 177). Art should be seen to be art but ‘the purposiveness of its form must appear as free from all compulsion by arbitrary rules, as if it were simply a product of nature’ (Kant 1996 p. 137). He goes on to claim, though, that ‘Nature was beautiful if at the same time it looked like art’ (p.
The freedom of the imagination not to be bound by existing concepts enlivens the powers of cognition, enabling them to develop further, thus suggesting the possible purpose of these powers in human self-development as part of the purpose of nature itself.
