Heidegger on Art

"Heidegger is not interested in works of art as expressions of the vision of a creator, nor is he interested in them as the source of aesthetic experiences in a viewer." In fact, "he insists that 'aesthetic experience is the element in which art dies.'"(1) Should this find you wondering, "what then, is art?" according to this fantastic thinker, read this draft by Dreyfus before we decide whether to dig into "The Origin of the Work of Art," and/or drop in for your afternoon coffee at the Pig. You might be surprised to discover your doing so, potentially 'artistic.' 1. Dreyfus, Hubert. "Heidegger on Art." N.p., 13 Sept. 2008. Web. .
