esthetic education: the global formation of men under the imperative of pleasure and liberty

angela santi


The idea of this article is to present the aesthetic education as a solution for the split of the man in body (sensitivity) and reason, understanding this split as an structural characteristic of the ocidental modern society. Such critical one of the culture appears in Marcuse, in Eros and Civilization, and is through it that we will visit some basic authors to the aesthetic question, such as Kant, with its notion of pleasure, beauty, reflection and dialogue, and Schiller, with its aesthetic utopia, where the "playful impulse" intends to reconcile sensual and formal impulses (rational). Through this trajectory, we intend to still point, that indirectly, to the recuperation of the education as global formation of the human being.
