John Hyman – “Truth and Truthfulness in Painting” (London Aesthetics Forum)

7 October 2020 @ 4:00 pm6:00 pm

John Hyman, RoR’s PI, will give a talk at the London Aesthetics Forum meeting on Wednesday 7 October 2020, 16.00–18.00 (UK time), on Zoom.

Here is the abstract for the talk:

In Truth and Truthfulness, Bernard Williams examines a “suspicion about truth itself”, which he claims is “very prominent in modern thought and culture”. I shall examine a similar “suspicion” in the theory of art, and discuss the bearing of truth and truthfulness in painting on the theory of truth itself.

Anyone who is interested in attending the talk should register from the London Aesthetics Forum website.
