E. J. 1007/978-94-017-7191-7_2 19 20 J. Baldacchino Unlike theological, cultural, or artistic aesthetics, philosophical aesthetics invested beauty with enough critical and political weight that it was deemed effective enough to educate humankind into bridging over the perceived chasm between the grammars of metaphysics and morality, the true and the good.

To make these radical claims a bit more concrete I will illustrate all this by means of a more detailed discussion of a very specific period in Western Art History, namely the first two centuries of the Twentieth Century, during which the Avant-Garde of the Parisian art-scene struggled quite explicitly with issues regarding the meaning and the possibility of artistic creation.

This presents a dilemma that warrants an excuse, which in education becomes manifest in the concept of Bildung.
