 Dear All,
though this is a bit at odds with the main subject of the list I wish nonetheless to share. A Turkish publisher wishes to publish Kant's "Observations on the
Feeling of the Beautiful and Sublime" and asked me to write an
introduction. May I ask you to come forward with ideas and references if
you have any. I appreciate that and will acknowledge that explicitly in
the paper either by individual names or by referring to the List. Among
others I am also interested in the question whether this early work of
Kant had any impact on Hegel and Marx. I know there are papers
comparing Kant and Hegel. But I did not come across any paper
addressing the impact of this paper on Marx. Marx himself however uses
the term "erhaben" in Capital. Furthermore, people usually refer to
Rousseau as one of Kant's sources. But I know from my research that
Adam Smith's The Theory of Moral Sentiments too had huge impact on
Kant. Do you know any paper in this regard that addresses the
relationship between Smith and Kant. I thank you very much for your
thoughts and help.

Best wishes,
