Sample text

Our cognitions do not stand still, and our feelings vary. Logically, no two-things are the same, and it makes no sense to say the same thing is identical with itselfnothing left over. The production of the same emotion by different contexts is impossible (Bosanquet 1894: 160). But the production of the same emotion by the same context is also impossible. No two performances are exactly the same. Collingwood (1938: 112-113) states, The anger I feel here and now ... is not quite like any anger that I ever feZt before and probably not quite like any anger I shall ever feel again.

It is to equivocate between AE of NE, and NE. If we have NE of NE, we do not have an AE. Metaemotions are emotions about emotions. Enjoyment of tragedy is AE about NE. Love of beauty is E about AB. For the expressionists, a simple E (something like F or AF) becomes AE by means of combinatory association and synthesis. 16 For Dewey (1958: 77), Expression is the clarification of turbid emotion. This is either a report of a feeling, and so not an emotion, or a metaemotion. Another interpretation is that it is the attempt to achieve the desired balance between cognitions and sensations.

Urmson (1983: 25) has maintained that AE cannot be distinguished by a special O. The aesthetic object is as real as the scientific object. A stick half out of water which looks bent is as real as a straight stick. Depth perception, though an interpretation, is as real as two dimensional objects. Art may be illusory or deceptive, but it is experienced as being as real as any empirical fact. On the empathy theory, one personifies, identifies oneself anthropomorphically with the object. AE =O. In this sense, one could say that the object is beautiful.
