Aesthetics and Philosophy of Art for Everyone

AFB x JAAC DISCUSSIONS #1: LEDDINGTON ON MAGIC

Leave a comment

One of the new features we’ll have on the blog this year are discussions of recent articles from the Journal of Aesthetics and Art Criticism. These will follow a similar format to the discussions on the PEA Soup blog: a critical précis by a guest, with an option for the author to respond in the post or in the comments.

The first of these will appear on Thursday, September 15! We will be discussing a paper by Jason Leddington (Bucknell) called “The Experience of Magic” from JAAC’s Summer 2016 volume, 74 (3). It’s available online here and in the print version, which non-Green ASA members will have received recently.

James Hamilton (KSU) will be providing the critical précis, and Leddington will provide a response. And they will both be available for discussion in the comments afterward.

Mark it in your calendars, and we hope to see you then!
