Talks at this conferenceAdd a talk
Our goal at this workshop is to explore the different normative dimensions of the aesthetic domain. We will discuss questions, like:
-what sort of norms, if any, does the aesthetic domain involve? Are these norms obligations, duties, or norms of some other sort?
-what are aesthetic norms directed toward? Toward the object? Toward oneself? Toward others?
-what is the source of aesthetic normativity? Pleasure? Morality? Cognition? Community? Culture?
-how does aesthetic normativity relate to cognitive or moral normativity?
-how should we understand the relationship between aesthetic normativity and aesthetic value?
-how should we understand the relationship between aesthetic norms and aesthetic reasons?
-what is the nature of the normativity involved in artistic creation? How, if at all, does this intersect with that of aesthetic appreciation?
