FIGUEIREDO, Vinicius de. Cassirer and sartre on enlightenment.Translated byRodrigo Brandão. Kriterion [online]. 2006, vol.2Selected edition, pp. 0-0. ISSN 0100-512X.
This paper aims at shedding some light on the Eighteenth-Century aesthetics. After examing two classical interpretations - Cassirer e Sartre - concerning this subject, I argue that both authors shares a common analitical pressuposition. My main purpose is to show that without taking account of the the relationship between author and public, we cannot understand some esential characteristics of the literature in the Enlightenment.
