Wittgensteinian realism additionally means that varied beauties develop into to be had and compelling in several cultural eras and produce a shared 'higher-order' worth into view. With this framework in position, Sedivy argues that notion is a kind of engagement with the area that pulls on our conceptual capacities. This procedure explains how perceptual event and the perceptible presence of the realm are of price, aiding to account for the range of beauties which are on hand in several old contexts and why the numerous faces of good looks let us event the worth of the world's perceptible presence.

Insights from such various thinkers as Immanuel Kant, Hans-Georg Gadamer and Arthur Danto, Alexander Nehamas, Elaine Scarry and Dave Hickey are woven jointly to bare how they make strong feel if we deliver modern thought of notion and Wittgensteinian realism into the dialog.
