Philosophy Program presents
Alessandra Brusadin PhD candidate in Philosophy, University of Padova Italy, and current Bard Research Scholar in Residence"Understanding Music in its Context: Wittgenstein's Criticism of a 'Science of Aesthetics'"
Is it possible for aesthetics to be a science? Can empirical methods provide an explanation for our aesthetic judgments? The possibility of a 'science of aesthetics' is one of the focuses of Wittgenstein's Lectures on Aesthetics (1938). In this talk,I will discuss aspects of our understanding of music in light of Wittgenstein's non-psychologistic view of aesthetics. Specifically, I will address the connection between our psychological or neural processes and the context of our experience of music.
