The purpose of this two-day conference is to reconsider one of the cornerstones of philosophical aesthetics: the idea that aesthetics is fundamentally about a form of perception. The event will take place on 20 and 21 October. Registration is free.
The Aesthetics Perception and Cognition Project organises a one-day workshop, which will take place on the 12th of January 2021. The theme of the workshop is Aesthetic Practices, and we will hear paper presentations by Rob Hopkins, Elisa Caldarola, and Jon Robson.
This reading group will study some text on the place of aesthetics in our lives. Think of the aesthetic value realised in good character, in good urban planning, in one’s personal style, of the ugliness of consumerism, etc. How do such values show up? And what is the place of those values in a theory of aesthetic experience or judgment?
