ASA funds Logos Dance Collective

The American Society for Aesthetics is pleased to announce that it has awarded $5136 in support of Post-Performance Philosophy Panels after programs of the Logos Dance Collective in New York City in March 2017.

This project, organized by Professor Barbara Montero of the CUNY-Graduate Center, aims to engage academics, artists, and the general public with great questions of philosophy. The panels will draw from work by Proust, Aristotle, Tolstoy, Plato, Nietzsche, Kant, and others.

As more information becomes available concerning the schedule and participating philosophers, it will be posted on the ASA web site and Facebook.
