Panayotis Michelis’ Critique of Dialectics
Keywords:Michelis P, aesthetics, dialectics, Plato, Hegel
Panayotis Michelis focuses on Plato’s and on Hegel’s dialectics, because these philosophers put the question of art on the highest level of truth. He, however, argues that they pose a ?outside dialectics’ on art, because they consider truth as metaphysical truth and then they maintain art fails more or less to manifest this truth. Michelis develops a dialectics of synthesis as a ?dialectics in art’ and vindicates the place of his aesthetics between philosophy of art and history of art.
