Abstract

[Autom. eng. transl.] In the course of the decisive process of renewal of the reflections on the liberal arts destined to prepare the ground for the foundation of aesthetics, some anthropological types, absolutely pacific, are discussed, in whose analysis central questions of a philosophical and moral nature are agitated: it is the "virtuoso" defined by the Count of Shaftesbury and the actor, framed by the sacrastic pen of Denis Diderot. Through these authors we see how aesthetics is born through a decisive and multilateral rethinking of the relationship between nature and culture and how the problem of taste becomes a litmus test to show the presence of a new idea of humanity and social relations
