Philosophy for Lunch
Feb 10: Aesthetic Attitude
The philosopher Jerome Stolnitz believed that we can perceptually approach objects and events in different ways. We'll read and discuss his distinction between the "practical attitude" and the "aesthetic attitude." This will require discussing the thought-provoking concept of aesthetic disinterest.
Philosophy for Lunch happens every Wednesday from 12–1PM, Dickson Hall, 430.
What is P4L? Students and professors close-read and discuss a few of the greatest passages in the history of philosophy.
Who's invited? No preparation or previous knowledge of philosophy is needed. Everyone is welcome!
Should I bring anything? Bring a beverage, and if you're hungry, bring your actual lunch.
