Aesthetics in the Academy

This page documents the activities of the American Society for Aesthetics Committee on the Status of Aesthetics in the Academy.

The Committee was formed in 1996 to seek ways to increase the visibility of aesthetics in philosophy and related disciplines such as English, fine arts, and the academy at large.

In 1997 and 1999, the Committee sponsored panel at the Annual Meeting of the ASA. In 1998 it surveyed philosophy departments about their offerings and needs in aesthetics (the results are below). In response to the results of the survey the Committee has published a Guide to Graduate Aesthetics in North America and sponsored an NEH Summer Institute on Art, Mind, and Cognitive Science, held at the University of Maryland in 2002.
