  Sublime (philosophy) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
For Kant, the sublime represented a feeling derived from aesthetic judgment, in which we realize the limits of our human nature: that is, we realize we cannot conceive of something because it is part of the noumenal realm.
The sublime, as a theme in aesthetics, went into something of a decline during the Modernist period, though, particularly in the work of Jean-François Lyotard, the sublime has had something of a revival.
For Lyotard, the sublime's significance is in the way it points to an aporia in human reason; it expresses the edge of our conceptual powers and reveals the multiplicity and instability of the postmodern world.

But we do not immediately associate the sublime with self-preservation; if `distress' is experienced, it is experienced when the `sublime' moment has ended and not because we perceive distress as part of what defines that moment itself.
Actually, the opposite is the case: Burke's and Kant's theories of the sublime sprang from world-views in which what one thought of God's relationship to man determined the very legitimacy of aesthetics as a field of inquiry.
But a formula which defines the sublime in cerebral terms alone may be as much a sign of the deterioration of the soul in the eighteenth century, as the equation of the term with the sensual is a sign of the deterioration of our language in the twentieth century.

 Freeman, "Frankenstein with Kant"   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-09)
Kant's construction of the sublime is bound up in a system of encasements, injunctions, and imperatives that function to protect the sublime from the monstrous potential inherent in it.
From paragraphs 26 to 29, the principal sections in which Kant discusses the mathematical and dynamical sublime, four pairs of oppositions are presented, each of which is crucial to the definition of the sublime.
It is as if the sublime has become not only the privileged object of contemporary theory, but a figure for theory as such, illustrating the ways in which theory refers to, represents, or cites itself, and naming the kind of activity -- that of incorporation -- characteristic of and proper to theory.

 Jean-François Lyotard [Internet Encyclopedia of Philosophy]
In the libidinal philosophy Lyotard uses the idea of libidinal energy to describe events and the way they are interpreted or exploited, and he develops a philosophy of society and theory in terms of the economy of libidinal energies.
Whereas in the libidinal philosophy the focus was to see that a single interpretation of an event did not become hegemonic, in Lyotard's later philosophy he is primarily concerned with the problems of justice that arise between competing interpretations of events.
This rejection is manifested in the philosophy of paganism that preceded Lyotard's postmodernism.

With the sublime, he gestures toward a feeling that precedes the divide in question, and that is more elementary than the aesthetical and the ethical taken separately.
In Lyotard's sublime, the aesthetical is only present in the quality of the artworks' event-character (as singular occurrences in time and space), and the ethical in so far as qua occurrences, that is, qua singularities, they claim their beholder.
Burke's sublime, not Kant's, is linked by Lyotard to the concern with the event, the happening, the occurrence of Being, that prevails in his understanding of post-modernity, and post-modern art.

 Immanuel Kant (1724 - 1804)
Kant's philosophy of nature and human nature is one of the most important historical sources of the modern conceptual relativism that dominated the intellectual life of the 20th century—though it is likely that Kant would reject relativism in most of its more radical modern forms.
The philosophical concept of the sublime, as described by philosopher Immanuel Kant in the Observations on the Feeling of the Beautiful and Sublime, took inspiration in part from attempts to comprehend the enormity of the Lisbon quake and tsunami.

 Kant, Immanuel -- Aesthetics [Internet Encyclopedia of Philosophy]
The sublime feeling is therefore a kind of 'rapid alternation' between the fear of the overwhelming and the peculiar pleasure of seeing that overwhelming overwhelmed.
The sublime, properly speaking, is possible only for members of such a moral culture (and, Kant sometimes suggests, may reciprocally contribute to the strengthening of that culture).
This raises the question of whether the mathematical and dynamically sublime are in fact radically different, both in themselves as experiences, and in their relation to 'moral culture'.

This philosophy must rest upon the principles of the unity of all Spirit, the brotherhood of all men, discarnate and incarnate, the facts of survival after death and communication with the Spirit world, and the concept of eternal progress.
This philosophy must be supported by scientific truth, and not belief, as in the past, and come transformed into religion by its practical application to life’s problems and not held as a pious platitude.

Imagination Arendt expresses her extreme confidence in that faculty.[14]  She declares, “the imagination is the condition of all knowledge.”  And this is perhaps why the sublime finally goes missing from her design; in Kant, no amount of imagination prepares for the sublime and it exemplifies nothing.

 Davy, A Discourse introductory to a Course of Lectures on Chemistry (1802)
{312} Mechanical philosophy, regarded as the science of the motions of the masses of matter, in its theories and practices, is, to a certain extent, dependent upon chemical laws.
Though astronomy in its sublime views, and its mathematical principles, is far removed from chemistry, yet to this science it is indebted for many of its instruments of experiments.
At the beginning of the seventeenth century very little was known concerning the philosophy of the intimate actions of bodies on each other; and before this time, vague ideas, superstitious notions, and inaccurate practices, were the only effects of the first efforts of the mind to establish the foundations of chemistry.

In commencing the exegetical study of any system of philosophy it is absolutely necessary that we adjust our perspective as accurately as possible, in conformity with the known FACTS regarding the character, personality, individuality, words and works of the founder.
And in pursuing this study, it is earnestly recommended that you do not attempt to seek the assistance of the various works on the Hermetic philosophy which are to be found in nearly all libraries and which are sold by all publishers of occult books.
The first message, the message we have to consider was essentially an appeal to the higher faculties of humankind, and while we are certainly to embody and adapt its precepts in our life activities, the method of assimilation of the inherent principles is an intellectual and spiritual process.

Never would a true Theosophist explain his sublime philosophy in such a manner, for the simple reason that it would not be true.
Consequently, in all the various great religions and philosophies are to be found fundamental principles which, when placed in juxtaposition and subjected to meticulous examination and analysis, are easily discovered to be identic in substance.
For Theosophy is the true and authentic Mother of Religions and Philosophies and Sciences: the great central systemic Source whence all the latter originally derived in past times, and therefore is their Interpreter: it interprets the hid meaning and secret symbology of all these ancient systems.
