Description

Empirical approaches to philosophical aesthetics (University of Sheffield).

In recent years, aestheticians have increasingly turned to empirical data in their philosophical work – either by drawing on the work of other cognitive scientists, or by undertaking experimental work themselves. This one-day workshop will focus on some of the research that is being done in this burgeoning area.

Workshop programme:

10.15: Arrival

10.30-11.30: “Image: for the eye and in mind” Komarine Romdehn-Romluc (Sheffield)

11.30-12.00: Break

12.00-1.30: “Art and Wonder” Jesse Prinz (CUNY)

1.30-2.00: Lunch break

2.00-3.00: “Is there a Default View of Aesthetic Testimony?” Jon Robson (Nottingham)

3.00-4.00: “Aesthetic Testimony, why do we value it less?” James Andow (Reading)

Attendance is free. Participants are asked to organise their own refreshments and lunch.
