“Was not their mistake once more bred of the life of slavery that they had been living?—a life which was always looking upon everything, except mankind, animate and inanimate—‘nature,’ as people used to call it—as one thing, and mankind as another, it was natural to people thinking in this way, that they should try to make ‘nature’ their slave, since they thought ‘nature’ was something outside them” — William Morris

Sublime Objects 2

I just posted this over at Arcade. I'm having some intuitions about Kant that might be too far out to work but I'm very interested in them. I think I can make Longinus work. Thanks to Michael Austin (Complete Lies) for the encouraging words on this project.

Read the post and let me know what you think.

The point is, I'm interested in showing that objects can “experience” the sublime, and maybe also the beautiful.
