Timeline of Supervision with Matthew Rowe


2, 2010

Informal meeting with Matthew (before he presented his lecture on aesthetics and the art school.) The discussion was wide ranging - Matthew observed we touched on the following issues: aesthetic autonomy, aesthetic experience, the relation of aesthetic and moral value (if any), the relation between aesthetic and artistic value (if any), and art as communication. I was struck by the possibilities for the "artness" being in the process of AAJ - and how this connects to artistic intention; also, I was interested the Matthew's distinction between an aesthetic attitude and an aesthetic experience--also, the artist's aesthetic experience and the viewer's aesthetic experience.

Questions for Matthew (via email): When did aesthetics become disentangled from moral philosophy? OR Are the majority of contemporary aesthetic theories amoral?
