SCHECK, Daniel Omar. The sublime and the reunification of subject from the feeling: the aesthetic beyond of the restrictions of beauty. Sig. Fil [online]. 2013, vol.15, n.29, pp.103-135. ISSN 1665-1324.

In this paper, firstly, I propose to show the aspects that determine a polarity and a contrast between the beautiful and the sublime throughout the 18th century. Secondly, I will maintain that this constant tension did not mean an occlusion, contradiction, or overcoming of an aesthetic on the other. Finally, I will try to account of the ethical scope was acquiring the sublime, which suggests this notion as a spiritual-moral feeling of reunification and elevation beyond the boundaries of taste and the merely beautiful.

Keywords : beautiful; aesthetics; ethics; reunification of the subject; sublime.
