aesthetic thought versus instrumental reason: the early years

Locke’s ​Essay Concerning Human Understanding ​might seem an unlikely place to espy the origins of aesthetic philosophy, but the deadlocks of empiricism it formulates may be precisely what necessitated the category of aesthetic cognition. InterCcECT is delighted to host a works-in-progress session on these questions with Professor Viv Soni.

Join us Thursday 10 May at 5pm at the InterCcECT Salon in Bucktown for “The Vanishing Place of Judgment between Empiricism and Aesthetics: The Case of Locke’s Essay.” Request the paper and final details.

InterCcECT is your circle. Sign up to receive regular updates, check the calendar for recommended events around town (like tonight’s The Art of Drinking Beer with Friends) and for our plans (like the upcoming Lacan reading group), and drop us a line to propose your own adventures.
