Hans-Georg Gadamer

Hans-Georg Gadamer

German philosopher
A cultured society that has fallen away from its religious traditions expects more from art than the aesthetic consciousness and the 'standpoint of art' can deliver. The Romantic desire for a new mythology... gives the artist and his task in the world the consciousness of a new consecration. He is something like a 'secular saviour' for his creations are expected to achieve on a small scale the propitiation of disaster for which an unsaved world hopes.More Hans-Georg Gadamer quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
