Many of us are dreaming of a garden in these pandemic times. But why is this so? What makes us desire gardens and why do we garden at all? My newest video discusses just this.
The special issue of Contemporary Aesthetics, “Urban Aesthetics” was just published! One of my essays, “Urban Kinaesthetics” is a part of it, which is really cool. It’s a paper that discusses in how far can the city be appreciated as a beautiful object by first asking how the city can be treated as an object of perception in the first place. Spoiler alert: sensorimotorics and the enactive concept of perception play the lead role.
I’m happy to report that I’ve been shortlisted for the British Society of Aesthetics essay prize for my essay “Of Beetles and Roubles: Wittgenstein’s Dostoevskian Interpretation of Action”, even if I did not get the prize in the end.
