This essay attempts to shed some light on the relationship between Kantian aesthetics and post-structuralism theory. As point of departure, I will argue that a close examination of aesthetics and post-structuralism engages much more than a major discussion on cultural representation and meaning. It also prompts an investigation into aesthetic criteria as ontological and socio-political forms. Like language, aesthetics is subject to its own historical and cultural revival, accrued from external inorganic forces such as the physicality of the art forms, ideas, concepts and narrative significance.
