Add a talk


Aesthetic and artistic normativity pertains to what’s good or bad in beauty and art. They speak to what makes something—or someone—beautiful or ugly. We are seeing a renewed attention to these issues by philosophers of art and aesthetics. The goal of this conference is to discuss and assess directions for research.
