FC: The Sublime | By Andrea Wolfe

1: n. a quality of terrifying yet awesome grandeur, engagement with which might lead one to Enlightenment. "This painting depicts the sea as a place where we might access the sublime." | adj. of great beauty or excellence. "The performance on opening night was absolutely sublime." | Typical Usage "sublime" | Art, Literature, Philosophy "the sublime" | Definition

2: "Beauty . . . derives from feelings of pleasure and has a relaxing effect on the 'fibers' of the human body. By contrast, the sublime, which derives from feelings of pain, tightens these fibers. Beauty merely invites; the sublime commands. . . . Because the beautiful could be realized, it was limited. But the sublime, which channeled the infinite and the inexpressible, could never be fully or artfully rendered. From this Burke deduces that: 'A clear idea is a little idea.' Goodbye Aquinas and Descartes; with a wave of the sublime, Burke cast out the neoclassical." --Arthur Krystal | Beauty vs. the Sublime | Edmund Burke

5: Immanuel Kant | "Though the experience of the sublime is to an extent unpleasant, it is also accompanied by a certain pleasure: we enjoy the feeling of being overwhelmed. On Kant's view, this pleasure results from an awareness that we have powers of reason that are not dependent on sensation, but that legislate over sense. The sublime thus displays both the limitations of sense experience (and hence our feeling of displeasure) and the power of our own mind (and hence the feeling of pleasure)." --The Cambridge Dictionary of Philosophy | Pleasure in Brain Power
