"Croce conceives of aesthetics as a general linguistics because its concern is with all expressive media, all forms of human symbol-construction, the paradigm of which is language. He thus sets the outlook of most twentieth-century philosophies of art which replace the concept of beauty with that of expression, or identify beauty, as Croce does, with expression.

Art, Croce maintains, is one of the major forms of the human spirit, the work of spirit in its aesthetical aspect. Spirit manifests itself as well in a logical and a practical synthesis, the latter exhibiting itself in the economic and moral activities of man. Croce refers to these various aspects of spirit as "the circle of spiritual activity." At the foundation of all knowledge is art, for intuitions, the stuff of art, precede concepts. " - (Benedetto Croce)
