    Ben Bronner (forthcoming). Maps and Absent Symbols. Australasian Journal of Philosophy.
    ABSENCE is the claim that if a symbol appears on a map, then absence of the symbol from some map coordinate signifies absence of the corresponding property from the corresponding location. This claim is highly intuitive and widely endorsed. And if it is true, then cartographic representation is strikingly different from linguistic representation. I argue, however, that ABSENCE is false of various maps and we have no reason to believe it is true of any maps. The intuition to the contrary (...)

    Simon Fokt (2014). The Cluster Account of Art: A Historical Dilemma. Contemporary Aesthetics 12:N/A.
    The cluster account, one of the best attempts at art classification, is guilty of ahistoricism. While cluster theorists may be happy to limit themselves to accounting for what art is now rather than how the term was understood in the past, they cannot ignore the fact that people seem to apply different clusters when judging art from different times. This paper shows that while allowing for this kind of historical relativity may be necessary to save the account, doing so could (...)

    A poem delivered upon the memorial of Viola Cordova in honor of indigenous women everywhere. "Two millennia of indigenous diasporas, yet we are all indigenous to this planet . . . There is a transnational indigenist agenda at work here to preserve and protect the human race for humans to remain among all our relations" .

    Robin James (2014). Neoliberal Noise: Attali, Foucault, & the Biopolitics of Uncool. Culture, Theory, and Critique 52 (2):138-158.
    Is it even possible to resist or oppose neoliberalism? I consider two responses that translate musical practices into counter-hegemonic political strategies: Jacques Attali’s theory of “composition” and the biopolitics of “uncool.” Reading Jacques Attali’s Noise through Foucault’s late work, I argue that Attali’s concept of “repetition” is best understood as a theory of neoliberal biopolitics, and his theory composition is actually a model of deregulated subjectivity. Composition is thus not an alternative to neoliberalism but its quintessence. An aesthetics and ethos (...)

    Ulrika Carlsson (2014). Kierkegaard's Phenomenology of Spirit. European Journal of Philosophy 22 (2).
    Kierkegaard's preoccupation with a separation between the ‘inner’ and the ‘outer’ runs through his work and is widely thought to belong to his rejection of Hegel's idealist monism. Focusing on The Concept of Irony and Either/Or, I argue that although Kierkegaard believes in various metaphysical distinctions between inside and outside (the inwardness of faith and the outwardness of ethics and language; the inwardness of emotion and the outwardness of behavior), he nonetheless understands the task of the philosopher as that of (...)

    Johan De Smedt & Helen De Cruz (2013). Delighting in Natural Beauty: Joint Attention and the Phenomenology of Nature Aesthetics. European Journal for Philosophy of Religion 5 (4):167-186.
    Empirical research in the psychology of nature appreciation suggests that humans across cultures tend to evaluate nature in positive aesthetic terms, including a sense of beauty and awe. They also frequently engage in joint attention with other persons, whereby they are jointly aware of sharing attention to the same event or object. This paper examines how, from a natural theological perspective, delight in natural beauty can be conceptualized as a way of joining attention to creation. Drawing on an analogy between (...)

    Martijn Boven (2014). Kierkegaard's Concepts: Incognito. In Steven M. Emmanuel, Jon Stewart & William McDonald (eds.), Volume 15, Tome III: Kierkegaard's Concepts: Envy to Incognito. Ashgate. 231-236.
    The concept 'incognito' is derived from the Latin incognitus (in-, prefix that expresses negation or privation + cognit-us, past participle of cognōscĕre to get to know). Its lexical meaning in Danish is: appearing in disguise; acting under an unfamiliar, assumed name (or title) to avoid identification. The concept is mentioned in several of Kierkegaard’s works, but only becomes a subject of reflection in two: Concluding Unscientific Postscript to Philosophical Fragments by Johannes Climacus and Practice in Christianity by Anti-Climacus. Both pseudonyms (...)

    Martijn Boven (2008). Wat vastgelegd is, misleidt ons: de Cahiers van Paul Valéry. Deus Ex Machina 127:5-6.
    Paul Valéry is de dichter die zwijgt; de denker die weigert filosoof te zijn; de schrijver die de taal in staat van beschuldiging stelt; de expert die volhoudt een amateur te zijn; de mysticus die zijn heil zoekt bij de wiskunde; de stamelaar die aan een kwaal van precisie lijdt; de Narcissus die misschien toch liever Orpheus had willen zijn. Hij is de chroniqueur van het denken en de meester van de tegenspraak. Ik probeer me hem voor te stellen. Het (...)

    Rafe McGregor (2010). Hutcheson's Idea of Beauty and the Doomsday Scenario. Postgraduate Journal of Aesthetics 7 (1):13-23.
    Francis Hutcheson is generally accepted as producing the first systematic study of aesthetics, in the first treatise of An Inquiry into the Original of Our Ideas of Beauty and Virtue, initially published in 1725. His theory reflected the eighteenth century concern with beauty rather than art, and has drawn accusations of vagueness since the first critical response, by Charles Louis DeVillete in 1750. The most serious critique concerns the idea of beauty itself: whether it was simple or complex, and the (...)

This structure lends itself to a description and analysis of smiling and laughing (...)

    Markus Schrenk (forthcoming). IS PROPRIOCEPTIVE ART POSSIBLE? In Graham George Priest & Damon Young (eds.), Philosophy and the Martial Arts.
    I argue for the possibility of a proprioceptive art in addition to, for example, visual or auditory arts, where aspects of some martial arts will serve as examples of that art form. My argument is inspired by a thought of Ted Shawn’s, one of the pioneers of American modern dance: "Dance is the only art wherein we ourselves are the stuff in which it is made.” In a first step, I point out that in some practices of martial arts (in (...)

    Scott R. Stroud (2014). Shusterman's Pragmatism: Between Literature and Soma-Esthetics Edited by Dorota Koczanowicz and Wojciech Malecki (Review). Journal of Aesthetic Education 48 (2):123-127.
    There are few contemporary thinkers in the tradition of American pragmatism as prolific or as creative as Richard Shusterman. His thought and work range from analytic aesthetics to political philosophy, from ethics to the importance of bodily habits in modern society. The volume edited by Dorota Koczanowicz and Wojciech Malecki highlights the remarkable international reception of Shusterman’s ideas. The majority of the contributors to this volume are Polish academics, a fact that stems from its origin in a 2008 conference in (...)

    Alexandria Peary (2014). Taking Self-Help Books Seriously: The Informal Aesthetic Education of Writers. Journal of Aesthetic Education 48 (2):86-104.
    Aesthetic education with a writing focus has occurred in the United States through two vehicles: textbooks in classroom-based instruction or self-help books in extracurricular instruction. Self-help books on writing, or texts that address a readership interested in learning about composing independent of a teacher or university, played a significant role in guiding countless individuals during the twentieth century and continues to do so today.1 The evolution of these self-help books paralleled the development of college and university writing courses that arose (...)

    Sanja Dejanovic (2014). Deleuze's New Meno: On Learning, Time, and Thought. Journal of Aesthetic Education 48 (2):36-63.
    A new Meno would say: it is knowledge that is nothing more than an empirical figure, a simple result which continually falls back into experience; whereas learning is the true transcendental structure which unites difference to difference, dissimilarity to dissimilarity, without mediating between them—not in the form of a mythical past or former present, but in the pure form of an empty time in general.1In Difference and Repetition (1968), Gilles Deleuze calls for a new Meno. The Meno is one of (...)

    Erin Bradfield (2014). Productive Excess: Aesthetic Ideas, Silence, and Community. Journal of Aesthetic Education 48 (2):1-15.
    Due to the complexity of aesthetic ideas and the lack of a determinate concept that is adequate to the experience, we search for the words to describe our encounters with art. Sometimes, that search is in vain, and we have difficulty expressing ourselves. In such cases, we are so taken aback by the sheer amount of cognitive activity spurred by our aesthetic experience that we are silenced by art. Instead of viewing what happens in judgments of taste as “discursively mute,” (...)

    Megan Strickfaden & Aymeric Vildieu (2014). On the Quest for Better Communication Through Tactile Images. Journal of Aesthetic Education 48 (2):105-122.
    Art in Western civilization has become a commodity that is fixed to walls and viewed through the eyes. In fact, most museums and galleries post “Do not touch” signs dissuading audiences from partaking in anything but the visual aspects of art. Yet art production is something that is inherently tactile; it involves engaging with art media such as paint and brush or clay that is molded by the human hand.1 Compounded by the “Do not touch” attitude is the taboo in (...)

    David Michelson (2014). Personality and the Varieties of Fictional Experience. Journal of Aesthetic Education 48 (2):64-85.
    In 1929, I. A. Richards observed in Practical Criticism that “every response is ‘subjective’ in the sense that it is a psychological event determined by the needs and resources of a mind,” and he concluded, “we have a real problem about the relative values of different states of mind, about varying forms, and degrees, of order in the personality.”1 Indeed, more than eighty years later, we still do. One main reason we still do is that, despite considerable efforts by reader-response, (...)

    Medical humanities and ethics are getting more and more important in Europe as essential disciplines of the core curriculum for health-care professionals. The idea of the physician as a technician shows itself to be unbearable because of the global historical changes we daily face in caring settings. We deal with chronic diseases, which require a sensitive physician/patient covenant and a good performance in communication skills1 because a whole life-style transformation is often necessary. Moreover, citizens are more informed about both the (...)
