Philosophy Guest Speaker: John Dyck

Fri, Oct 25, 2019
3:00 PM – 4:30 PM
Ross Hall 136

The next philosophy talk will be given by John Dyck (Auburn University) "Choosing Beauty". Dyck will address the Auburn Aesthetics Forum on Friday, Oct. 25 at 3 p.m. in 136 Ross Hall. The talk is free and open to the public. For more information, contact Tom Lockhart at tpl0002@auburn.edu.

Abstract:  When you smell a stinky sock, it's hard to imagine evaluating the smell differently. Nevertheless, I'll argue that we have aesthetic agency in a strong sense: We can directly determine how we aesthetically evaluate things. This might seem absurd. For one thing, it seems as though the objectivity of aesthetic reasons makes them responsive to truth and worth, and thus out of our agential reach. For another thing, it seems as though our aesthetically authentic selves are precisely those elements which are automatic and unchosen. I'll argue that we have aesthetic agency even though our evaluations are sensitive to truth and worth. And I'll show that this agency is authentic to our selves.
