ISBN 0-295-97577-6; Navon, Mois. The sublime is at the heart of Kantâs aesthetic philosophy. Trans. Mountain Gloom and Mountain Glory. Lessons on the Analytic of the Sublime. Monk, Samuel H. The Sublime: A Study of Critical Theories in XVIII-Century England. Ithaca, 1959. This is the standard meaning, derived from Kant. To discuss the sublime entails admitting that taste is not coterminous with aesthetics. Kant defines sublime as that is beyond all comparison (that is absolutely) great, either mathematically in terms of limitless magnitude, or dynamically in terms of limitless power.

This is based on our aesthetic response to overwhelming magnitudeâin terms of vastness or size. Stanford University Press, 1994. Offers two different accounts of Kant's position. The Analytic of the Sublime, he points out, tries to argue that human thought is always constituted through a similar incompatibility between different intellectual and affective faculties.
