Schopenhauer's Concept of Music
Bakovský, Pavel ; Pokorný, Martin (advisor) ; Kolman, Vojtěch (referee)
(in English): The topic of this work is aesthetics and metaphysics of art in writings of Arthur Schopenhauer with emphasis on his concept of music. Its main goal is to present Schopenhauer's aesthetics in broader context of his philosophy and to provide an account of whether his theory is a plausible explanation of art. Important topics include discussion of relationship between art and nature and analysis of Schopenhauer's approach to a concept of (platonic) Idea. This work tries to put forward an interpretation of Ideas based on their role in the order of nature, while sounding doubts about their function in art. It concludes, that while music according to Schopenhauer's account might provide us some important metaphysical insight, it is doubtful whether other arts provide us the kind of knowledge ascribed to them by Schopenhauer.
