This paper analyzes contrasting arguments for the contemporary relevance of Hegel’s aesthetics that have been put forward by two of the foremost Hegel scholars working today: Stephen Houlgate and Robert Pippin. At stake in this dispute is not simply the ‘application’ of Hegel’s aesthetics to later art practice, but how we are to interpret his views on art in the first place.
