Join us as we welcome Jonardon Ganeri, Bimal K. Matilal Distinguished Professor of Philosophy at the University of Toronto.

Professor Generi will deliver his talk, "Śaṅkuka Among the Scorpions: The Epistemology of Staged Emotion"

In the aesthetic theory of classical India, theatre was not merely a form of entertainment but a way of showing an audience what it is like to live another life. Just one of the classical theories–Śrī Śakuka (c. 850 CE) explores the epistemology of this aesthetic theory.

In this talk, Professor Ganeri will examine the reasons this epistemology was rejected in the later tradition. Those reasons are unsound, but it is only with the help of contemporary studies of epistemic luck that we can see why.
