For this workshop, each session will consist of a 15-minute presentation and a 15-minute Q&A. ¶ 2:00 pm – start ¶ 2:05 pm – “Robust Moderate Moralism”Craig K. Agule (Rutgers University – Camden) Abstract: What should we make of cases of morally problematic but otherwise apparently beautiful artworks? Do moral flaws make for aesthetic flaws? I argue that our moral reactions have essential perceptual and interpretive elements and that those elements can provide a straightforward, non-foundational, and genre-independent account of aesthetic moralism. We should thus not be surprised if moral flaws make for aesthetic flaws. I also consider a different puzzle for aesthetic moralism, cases where a moral flaw seems tied to an aesthetic virtue, showing that this is possible, but that the ordinary examples are problematic. In both sorts of these cases, I show the aesthetically explanatory power of our fitting moral responses, buttressing the case for aesthetic moralism. We are not prudes or unsophisticated if we find the morally ugly aesthetically ugly, as moral matters and moral responses are proper grist for the aesthetic critic. ¶ 2:35 pm – “The ‘Crack in the Voice’ and Joe Turner Blues”Jeanette Bicknell (Independent Scholar & ASA Ombudsperson) Abstract: Great art has... -

The Siege of the Capitol and ‘Civil War’ One of the many controversies precipitated by the January 6th unrest at the Capitol has been a terminological controversy around words like ‘sedition’, ‘insurrection’, ‘coup’, and even ‘civil war’. Of course, these disputes are not simply terminological. They play a vital role in framing ideological and practical stakes, signaling alignments and issuing normative judgments, while […] The post The Siege of the Capitol and ‘Civil War’ first appeared on Blog of the APA.

Perceptual Experience and Concepts in Classical Indian Philosophy [Revised entry by Monima Chadha on January 12, 2021. Changes to: Main text, Bibliography] Classical Indian Philosophy accepts perception (pratyakṣa), or perceptual experience, as the primary means of knowledge (pramāṇa). Perception (pratyakṣa) is etymologically rooted in the sense-faculty or the sense-organ (akṣa) and can be translated as sensory awareness, while pramāṇa, on the other hand, is derived from knowledge (pramā) and, literally means 'the instrument in the act of knowing'....

On Hiding Faces 3D scanner depiction of a masked face by the artist Lukas Einsele (2020) (permission granted by artist) Faces are hidden for many reasons. We hide our faces for security, privacy, out of vanity, pride, respect, or playfulness. We hide them in shock, shame, sadness, or exhaustion. They are also made hidden by others and dehumanized […] The post On Hiding Faces first appeared on Blog of the APA. Blog of the APA -

It uses […] The post The Daisy Ad and an Appeal to Fear first appeared on Blog of the APA. Blog of the APA -
