This year’s speaker, Dr. Maxine Sheets-Johnstone, Philosophy Department, University of Oregon, will give two talks that address several issues within the overlap between philosophy and art. She challenges the traditional idea that philosophy is first and foremost a cognitive activity that does not rely on the human body beyond the brain. In particular, she discusses the importance of the human body and its movement in dance for us as conscious beings that engage with the world.

Featuring a panel of local experts and lively discussion.
