Content

The selection of essays in the 19th Yearbook of the International Association for Aesthetics aims to analyse the phenomenon of retracing the past, i.e. of identifying the signs, details and processes of the creative re-interpretation of long-lasting traditions both in actual works of art and in aesthetic thought, hence where the historical interconnectedness and the influence of earlier sources can appear.

CALL FOR PAPERS

Questions and problems of perspectives of art

The ambition of the two international scientific conferences is to explore and discuss various methodological approaches to the perspectives of art from the mid-19th century (specifically from the publication of the two-part Aesthetics by G.W.F. Hegel in 1832), through the present to the formulation of assumptions of possible future of art, its meanings, or its place in society.

Application deadline: March 31, 2018
