Philosophy of Architecture: Kant's Idea of Disinterestedness
In other words, Kant believes that fine art is intentionally produced, yet remains purposive without a purpose, and is fabricated, essentially unnatural, yet must appear natural to its viewers.
Mostly the media use visually shocking subject matter in order to attract more reader, but if they had to have aesthetic and technically good photography which will be better photography.
Here, Kant is trying to define the parameters within which objects are judged and why it is necessary to notice the aesthetic in an object, a truly daunting task. Kant refers to these grounds as common sense, meaning the shared sense of the beautiful in an object by different viewers, or in other words-taste (Kant 94).
