SUBLIME IN CONTEMPORANEITY


Sublime in Contemporaneity?

Previous understandings:

* postmodern sublime/unpresentable of the postmodern art

1. The phrase is related to Nietzssche's nihilism-a kind of perspectivism.
2. It is also akin to Kant's aesthetics of the sublime.

1. 'The sublime evokes a contradictory feeling' (The Idea of the Postmodern: A History 133) . It is '... a strong and equivocal e...motion: it carries both pleasure and pain... in it pleasure derives from pain.' (p43)
2. For Kant, sublime occurs 'when the imagination fails to present an object which might, if only in principle, come to match a concept.' This is the relation beween Kantian aesthetics of sublime and unpresentable. (p43)
3. Lyotard's postmodern sublime is 'an art of negation, a perpetual negation... based on a never-ending critique of representation that should contribute to the preservation of heterogeneity, of optimal dissensus... [it]does not lead towards a resolution; the confrontation with the unpresentable leads to radical openness' (The Idea of the Postmodern: A History 133) .

Now in Contemporaneity:

If you are a contemporary poetry or a contemporary culture, the following considerations are there:

1) concept and conceptual pattern and stucture in poetry(e.g.discussions, seminal culture, negotiation and reinterpretations...)
2) Third mind and fourth mind culture; more than one culture in mental formations and sensations in parallel or in conjunction with
3) Realizing conceptual and post-conceptual poetry in details, not totally.
4) Pahtan (24 Pyitsee) concepts in depth-not as a religion but as a liberal thinkership

Poem of the Day

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
