Beyond Morality: Aesthetic Responsibility

Talk

WHEN January 25, 2016
6:30-8pm WHERE NYUAD Campus, Conference Center WHO NYU Abu Dhabi Institute Open to the Public

Philosophers often suggest that the fact that we are morally responsible is an important mark of our distinctive humanity. But people are responsible for much more than the moral qualities of their actions. Artists, for example, are typically aesthetically responsible for the qualities of their artistic creations. The talk discusses the similarities and differences between aesthetic and moral responsibility and speculates on what a consideration of aesthetic responsibility tells us about both responsibility and humanity.
