I think we should take caution. It turns out that maybe the sublime isn't as good as Kant might think it is.

this is pretty funny.

at first i thought that looking at too much art might make you look like a 19th-century man (stendhal?). then i thought that looking at too much art might make you bored by it, unaffected by it. but then it turns out that looking at too much art can make you have a fit. or make you hot and bothered.

yes, the sublime has nothing on beauty according to this article.
