Materialism, after all, results in “shapeless, [describable] emotions such as fear and joy,” while abstraction encompasses those “inner, subtler feelings…beyond the reach of words” (Section I, Paragraph 4). These contrasting depths of emotion give rise to the potent tension between materialism and abstraction in Section VI, Paragraph 18 of Kandinsky’s essay “Concerning the Spiritual in Art.” Here, Kandinsky comments on those “rhomboidal composition[s] made up of a number of human figures [which are] an absolute necessity to the composition,” criticizing the figures’ material appeal for “directly weakening [the composition’s] abstract appeal.” While Kandinsky correctly…

Examining two philosophers, or more, side-by-side can provide insight into why beauty is a hard concept to grasp, but it does not examine why the philosophers either agree or disagree with one another. Kant’s Critique of Judgement attempts to specify what makes something beautiful and in doing so…
