A special panel on embodiment and the arts featured talks by Alva Noë and Sean Kelly with critical response from David Davies. Speakers and commentators at the meeting ranged from senior aestheticians and regular Pacific Division attendees to graduate students attending for the first time. The meeting continued its tradition of providing an intimate, friendly environment for intellectual stimulation and challenge (plus the occasional stroll to the ocean).
