Talks at this conferenceAdd a talk
Both painters and philosophers often take an ambivalent view of the cognitive significance of painting. Although painting has been traditionally intertwined with the quest to represent the world accurately, the embodied skills it requires resist description in intellectual terms. Further, when considering its cognitive character, philosophers have throughout history relied on concepts based on language or generic theories of depiction or art. This one-day workshop brings together several perspectives on the relation between painting and philosophy and aims to shed some light on the cognitive significance of painting as an example of embodied intelligence in action.
