Monday 9:00 am - 12:00 pm via Zoom
Nils Stear works in aesthetics, ethics, and their intersection. The main focus of his work currently is on the question, whether an artwork's ethical value determines its aesthetic value and how. He is currently writing a book that seeks to answer this question titled Beyond Moralism, which is under contract with Oxford University Press.
In addition, Stear has published on fiction, the imagination, feminist sexual ethics, and our engagement with sports and competitive games. He is currently co-writing papers on the ethics of adopting oppressive attitudes in imagination and on the nature of aesthetic pleasure.
