WERLE, Marco Aurélio. Winckelmann, Lessing and Herder: aesthetics of the effect?. Trans/Form/Ação [online]. 2000, vol.23, n.1, pp. 19-50. ISSN 0101-3173. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0101-31732000000100002.
We analyse in this article, from the point of view of an aesthetics of the effect, the sources of the so called "aesthetics of Goethe's time", according to the works of Lessing, Winckelmann and Herder. Our aim is to show that there are in those authors both an influence of the parameter of the effect, elicited by the work of art on the spectactor, and the pointing to a dimension, so to speak critical, idealistic and speculative of appreciation of the artistic phenomenon.
