Jon Robson (Nottingham): God and the Nature of Aesthetic Properties

Jon Robson (Nottingham): God and the Nature of Aesthetic Properties

19th September 2018 - 4:15 pm, Edinburgh


Abstract

There are a number of ongoing debates in aesthetics concerning the nature and scope of aesthetic properties. In this talk, I consider how these debates might intersect with an important (but philosophically neglected) claim within various religious traditions; that God is perfectly beautiful. In particular, I ask whether we can reconcile this claim with the influential view that aesthetic properties (and their bearers) must be perceptible.
