Sharon Hause has invited all of us to engage in a dialogue on Susanne
Langer's ideas. This is essentially a nice idea--Langer was a truly
insightful aesthetician and a very influential one. But, I confess to
having only a limited working familiarity with her works. So, if you want
answers to questions, you'll have to bear with me as I scratch around in
her works and works about her works to find answers.
Now, one way to get a pretty good fix on Langer's general position
in aesthetics is to read the article "Langer, Susanne Knauth" in Vol. 3 of
the new ENCYCLOPEDIA OF AESTHETICS (Oxford University Press, 1998). The
article was written by Prof. Forest Hansen, who is Prof. emeritus of
Philosophy at Lake Forest College. A really detailed question, or a
question involving close interpretation of Langer's works might well be
forwarded to him. (Dept. of Philosophy, Lake Forest College, Lake Forest
