In this book, McMahon argues that a reading of Kant'¬"s body of work in the light of a pragmatist theory of meaning and language (which arguably is a Kantian legacy) leads one to put community reception ahead of individual reception in the order of aesthetic relations. A core premise of the book is that neo-pragmatism draws attention to an otherwise overlooked aspect of Kant'¬"s "Critique of Aesthetic Judgment," and this is the conception of community which it sets forth. While offering an interpretation of Kant'¬"s aesthetic theory, the book focuses on the implications of Kant'¬"s third critique for contemporary art. McMahon draws upon Kant and his legacy in pragmatist theories of meaning and language to argue that aesthetic judgment is a version of moral judgment: a way to cultivate attitudes conducive to community, which plays a pivotal role in the evolution of language, meaning, and knowledge.
