Gadamer I 104
"Phenomenology of the Mind"(1) to mark Kant's and Fichte's postulative supplementation of the basic moral experience to a moral world order, only gains its actual character in aesthetics. It is the multiplicity and possible change of world views that gives the term "world view" the sound familiar to us(2). But the history of art is the leading example of this, because this historical multiplicity cannot be lifted up into the unity of a goal of progress towards true art. Admittedly, Hegel was only able to acknowledge the truth of art by surpassing it in the grasping knowledge of philosophy, and by constructing the history of world views, such as the history of the world and the history of philosophy, from the perfect self-consciousness of the present. >Truth of Art/Hegel.

2. The word "world view" (cf. A. Götze, Euphorion 1924) still holds the reference to the mundus sensibilis at the beginning, even in Hegel's case, as long as it is the art in whose concepts the essential world views lie (Aesth. Il, 131). But since, according to Hegel, the definiteness of the world view is something of the past for today's artist, the multiplicity and relativity of world views has become a matter of reflection and inwardness._____________Explanation of symbols: Roman numerals indicate the source, arabic numerals indicate the page number.
