Description


Richard Shusterman 

Dorothy F. Schmidt Eminent Scholar in the Humanities, Professor of Philosophy, and Director of the Center for Body, Mind, and Culture at Florida Atlantic University 

Somaesthetics and Embodied Experiences


Richard Shusterman is one of the leading philosophers in the world. This is a unique opportunity to get a first hand insight into his work in pragmatist aesthetics and the emerging field of Somaesthetics: 
“the critical, meliorative study of the experience and the use of one’s body as a locus of sensory-aesthetic appreciation (aesthesis) and creative self- fashioning.” 
Professor Shusterman’s lecture will employ the insights of American pragmatism and his research in somaesthetics to explore new directions for philosophy’s engagement with embodied experiences.
