Logic, Aesthetics, Victorian, Art, Critical Theory, Mill, Tennyson, Rosetti
Implicit in a work of art is an aesthetic sensibility. The process of implication may be explored with the science of logic—in general, whether deductive or inductive systems of rationale are at work. Because aesthetic sensibilities are reflections of stylistic techniques, and also point to larger philosophies or interpretive models of reality, the use of logical categorization may provide new perspectives in the critical examination of literature. Here, a basis for logic as an artistic microscope is given, and a brief study of Victorian artwork is conducted, in terms of deductive and inductive rational dialogue. Mill, Tennyson, and Rossetti are focused upon.
