Stephen Snyder (Fatih) will give a talk on Friday March 15th from 5-7pm in TB130 on: “Arthur Danto’s Andy Warhol: The Embodiment Theory in Art and the Pragmatic Turn” ABSTRACT : Arthur Danto’s most recent book, Andy Warhol, leads the reader through the story of the iconic American’s artistic life highlighted by a philosophical commentary, a commentary that merges Danto’s aesthetic theory with the artist’s own narrative. Inspired by Warhol’s Brillo Box installation, art that in Danto’s eyes was indiscernible from the everyday boxes it represented, Danto developed a theory that is able to differentiate art from non-art by employing the body of conceptual art theory manifest in what he termed the ‘artworld’. The strength of Danto’s theory is found in its ability to explain the art of the post-modern era.
The concept of taste in aesthetics had its origins in ideas about gustatory taste, and much was made of this analogy in the eighteenth century. Recent research on taste opens up the possibility of a re-examination of the relations between the gustatory and aesthetic concepts. Questions about the nature of taste perception, the role that knowledge plays in our appreciation of tastes, whether we can separate the descriptive and evaluative aspects of taste judgments, the contribution language makes to identification of flavors, the cultural aspects of taste, and the nature of expertise, all raise interesting and important parallels with the exercise of taste in other domains. The time is right to explore a range of connected issues spanning the domains of sensory science, psychology, connoisseurship, philosophy of language, philosophy of mind, metaphysics and aesthetics.
Chaired by Professor Thomas Nagel The subject is the relation between science and religion. The project's initial focus was on epistemological questions.
Chaired by Paul Boghossian , Paul Horwich , and Crispin Wright This project will focus on belief, inference, rationality, truth, probability, knowledge, and doubt. It aims to address problems that are both central yet understudied, and to promote work that addresses those concepts from unfamiliar angles. Amongst the questions with which we will be concerned are: What are the differences between (i) believing something, (ii) relying upon it for practical purposes, and (iii) supposing its truth for the sake of argument? Is belief always, sometimes, or never, under voluntary control?

The world is meaningless, there is no God or gods, there are no morals, the universe is not moving inexorably towards any higher purpose. All meaning is man-made, so make your own, and make it well. Do not treat life as a way to pass the time until you die. Do not try to "find yourself", you must make yourself. Choose what you want to find meaningful and live, create, love, hate, cry, destroy, fight and die for it.
One of the most salient features of our culture is that there is so much bullshit. Everyone knows this. Each of us contributes his share.
This is a list of some of the major unsolved problems in philosophy . Clearly, unsolved philosophical problems exist in the lay sense (e.g. " What is the meaning of life? ", " Where did we come from? ", " What is reality? ", etc.).
