About “Ding an sich”

“For Immanuel Kant, beauty is not a feature of the object, but an experience, and this experience is not reserved for our dealing with art, but is mainly known from our meeting with nature. According to Kant, this is essentially about something as fundamental as our sense of life and what it can tell about ourselves and our relationship to each other and to the world. For example, we and the world may be less alien to each other than we usually think, because the world is not just our surrounding, but also our origin.”
