John was "hoping to hear from Walter or Robert or Phil some
thoughts on Kant's distinction between the beautiful and the sublime
and whether Nehamas has produced an interesting alternative view.
Instead I got pink wallpaper."

We've been flirting with the relation of Quality to Beauty, and here's an example of the yearning for quality. Tiring of amateur efforts, John wants to hear from the pros. What do the pros, with their professional attention to these matters, think of Nehamas?

If the ability to evaluate beauty is learned, is it Quality that is learned?
