Modern Philosophy Conference 2007
2007 Conference on Issues in Modern Philosophy: "Aesthetic Judgment"
The New York University Department of Philosophy sponsors annual conferences on issues in modern philosophy. Each conference invites a number of distinguished
philosophers to examine the development of a central philosophical problem from early modern philosophy to the present, seeking to understand the evolution of formulations
of the problem and of approaches to resolving it. By examining the work of philosophers of the past both in historical context and in relation to contemporary philosophical thinking,
the conferences aim to allow philosophy’s past and present to illuminate each other.
The 2007 Conference, "Aesthetic Judgment," will be held November 9-10, 2007.
Registration for the conference is now closed.
