Testimony; aesthetic and otherwise
11th May 2012 - University of Nottingham
The workshop aims to address the debate over the value of testimony in aesthetics as well as the relationship between this debate and broader issues in epistemology and elsewhere. Questions to be addressed include:
· Is aesthetic testimony epistemically, or otherwise, deficient when compared to other forms of testimony or firsthand aesthetic experience?
· How does the aesthetic testimony debate relate to the broader debate in epistemology over the nature and value of testimony?
· What bearing does in empirical work in, for instance, social psychology have on the debate over testimony in aesthetics and elsewhere?
· How does testimony in aesthetics relate to testimony in other areas, such as morality, where the value of testimony has been questioned?
