Politics is sublime
Received 14 July 2010; in revised form 3 June 2011
Abstract. This paper examines the political aesthetic of Hannah Arendt and Jacques Rancière who in their own ways, found resources in an innovative reading of Kant’s Critique of Judgment. The paper explores the Kantian legacy in the political understanding of these two thinkers. It then focuses on Rancière’s notion of dissensus and argues that his politics shares the aesthetic features associated with the Kantian sublime.
Keywords: politics, aesthetics, sublime, common sense, dissensus, Arendt, Kant, Rancière
