The Paradox of Precision: Prof. Mahrenholz about The Logical Birth of Aesthetics

22/3/16 18:00 - 19:00 Mitchelle Building, Room: 2208

The talk claims that we are entertaining conflicting ideas on what “precision” in judging and symbolizing is, without necessarily being aware of it. It further shows that the artists (e.g. painters) have been historically the prototypes of knowledge bearers of an important kind that differs from the one of logics and language.

The presentation, by Prof. Simone Mahrenholz from the University of Manitoba, will attempt at describing some differences and relationships, thereby referring to G.W. Leibniz, Nelson Goodman and Th. W. Adorno.
