The notion of aesthetic truth - here to be understood as more than simply 'correct judgments of taste' [1] - has been brought into discussion by a lot of thinkers: Hegel, Adorno, Lukacs, Heidegger, Gadamer - to name just a few (of which I'm only acquainted with the first two). But if I'm not mistaken the concept does not play a big role in current discussions (please point me to exceptions if there are any). Is there any reason why one would want to resuscitate this category? Why could debates about aesthetic truth still be important and/or interesting?
