If we want to revive the concept of aesthetic attention, it needs to be pointed out that Dickie’s argument is incomplete or maybe even misguided. And, as it turns out, it is. 5 I called this insight Kantian because this is a view routinely attributed to Kant, but see Zangwill 1992 for a more nuanced account of what Kant meant and for an analysis of how contemporary concepts of disinterestedness relate to the Kantian one. OUP CORRECTED PROOF – FINAL, 27/11/2015, SPi DISTRIBUTED ATTENTION  Dickie (reasonably) assumes that those accounts that define aesthetic experience (or aesthetic attitude) in terms of disinterested attention would need to have a clear distinction between interested and disinterested attention: aesthetic experience is characterized by disinterested attention and other kinds of experiences are characterized by interested attention.

More generally, one could argue that aesthetic experiences often have a lot to do with formal unity: the taking in of the artwork (or whatever is OUP CORRECTED PROOF – FINAL, 27/11/2015, SPi DISTRIBUTED ATTENTION  experienced in an aesthetic manner) as a single, integrated whole (see Beardsley 1981 for a classic exposition of this). Wouldn’t this involve focused and not distributed attention? I think it wouldn’t. This way of thinking about aesthetic experiences is very much consistent with my approach.

Aesthetic experiences, as we have seen, have a lingering effect—they last even after the concert or the theatre performance is over. The deflationary account does not have the means to explain this: we are no longer detecting the aesthetic/expressive properties of anything after the film or concert is over or when we leave the museum. But then what explains that we still experience the world in an aesthetic manner? The deflationary account could, of course, be supplemented by an independent explanation for why this is so, but no such explanation is provided by the account itself.
