ABSTRACT
The article presents a critique of the philosophies of American art philosopher Susanne Langer as expressed throughout her numerous publications such as "Feeling and Form." Langer speaks of artistic form as not being part of phenomena in the order of actual things and of an image as a purely virtual object. Langer addresses topics such as aesthetic quality of things in the world and forms within design. While Langer sees an art object as created to symbolize human feeling, the author suggests that it rather captures more of the receiver’s feelings and reactions.
