  • Abstract: ABSTRACT:

    An implication of Kant's aesthetics is that the audience for art must be able to meet the free play of the imagination of the artist with free play of their own imagination in order to enjoy the work of art. Does Collingwood's conception of the aesthetic audience's 'reconstruction' of the imaginative work of the artist leave room for this thought? No, but his conception of the historian's 're-enactment' of the thought of the historical subjects suggests a model for this relation that might be added to his aesthetic theory.
