some thoughts on and @philosophyofscience

I've been teaching the philosophy of science even though this is not at all my expertise, but today it struck me that the discipline is similar to aesthetics in several interesting ways.

For one thing, both are latecomers among philosophical fields of study; while both have roots going back to Plato and Aristotle, these sources are part of the disciplines' prehistory. Their real origins lie rather in the modern age.

THE UNMAKING OF FASCIST AESTHETICS by Kriss Ravetto (2001)

"The very attempt to narrativize and moralize fascism translates what is perceived as the object of this moral narrative, the event of fascism as a "lived experience," into representation, which consequently implicates such moral and political representations of fascism in the restaging, stylizing, or aestheticizing of such an event."

    NOTES ON TRUMPSPACE: Politics, Aesthetics, and the Fantasy of Home by David Marcus 2023

    Trumpspace "argues that the fascination and horror Trump has provoked is owing in part to the way he lays bare the obsession with status, self-branding, and achievement-at-any-cost that has been part and parcel of the broader neoliberal ethos. Finally, it analyzes the January 6, 2021 storming of the US Capitol through the lens of spatio-political theorizations of settler colonial power and conceptions of home and homeland."

    WHITE SIGHT. Visual Politics and Practices of Whiteness by Nicholas Mirzoeff (The MIT Press, 2023).

    "White supremacy is not only perpetuated by laws and police but also by visual culture and distinctive ways of seeing. Nicholas Mirzoeff argues that this form of “white sight” has a history. By understanding that white sight was not always common practice, we can devise better ways to dismantle it. Spanning centuries across this wide-ranging text, Mirzoeff connects Renaissance innovations—from the invention of perspective and the erection of Apollo statues as monuments to (white) beauty and power to the rise of racial capitalism dependent on slave labor—with ever-expanding surveillance technologies to show that white sight creates an oppressively racializing world, in which subjects who do not appear as white are under constant threat of violence".

    "Dark MAGA: The Latest Cycle in the Far-Right Aesthetics Laundromat" by Tim Squirrell (2022).

    "Many people reading about the latest development in right-wing extremist aesthetics might think little of it or find it laughable – after all, Dark MAGA attempts to make a septuagenarian former President look cool and edgy. The problem with this reaction is that it both writes off the movement as fundamentally unserious – which it is not – and allows for further amplification by journalists and others who cover Dark MAGA as light news."

I've never quite warmed to Heidegger's readings of Hölderlin, nor indeed his understanding of poetry in general. Does anyone know of a good (published, peer-reviewed) criticism that challenges Heidegger's reading of Hölderlin head-on?

    it occurs to me that the most persistent prejudice among (contemporary) philosophers and people in general when it comes to philosophical , is NOT subjectivism (roughly: the idea that beauty is in the eye of the beholder). Rather, it is formalism, the eye that beauty is a matter purely of a thing's formal features (composition, structure, tone, feel) and nothing to do with its substantive features (what it signifies, what it is about, etc.)
