Criticism in search of an esthetic

Wilhelmsen, Frederick D.
August 1952
America;8/30/1952, Vol. 87 Issue 22, p520
The article focuses on the criticism which is aimed at searching for esthetics, in relation to the Catholic faith. The two dominant doctrines within Catholic critical theory are the general position initiated and executed by the New Critics, which is influencing certain Catholic critics, and the older scholastic esthetics which combines the ancient doctrine of art as a making with an emphasis on the contemplation and expression of the beautiful. The objectives of New Criticism are discussed.
