Красота спасет мир? Идеология как эстетика
An attempt has bee undertaken in the article to apply Kant's cognitive pattern of aesthetic theory for analyzing particularities of political ideology. Connecting the discursive approach to ideology proposed by Althusser, and Kant's theory of aesthetics as critique of the judgment ability (Kritik der Urtheilskraft), one formalizes in a new way the concept of ideology in categories of "the beautiful - the ugly" and of "the lofty - the profane" and overcomes the stable stereotype of ideology as "false consciousness". What appears especially important in this connection is not so much how this or that ideology describes the world, as how it "locates" in this world the socio-political agents.
