The Legacy of Frank Sibley


An hour and a half of lively discussion at the LSE during lunchtime, this series offers a unique mix of insights into both the biographical and intellectual development of our most distinguished thinkers

This dialogue will centre around the work and legacy of the late Frank Sibley, arguably the first philosopher to bring the methodology of analytic philosophy to Aesthetics. Sibley shaped many of the questions and set the agenda that analytic philosophers working in Aesthetics are still pursuing today. Themes for discussion in this dialogue include the way in which one can and/or should distinguish between aesthetic and non-aesthetic experiences and properties; what aesthetic taste and sensibility really amounts to and what role they play in aesthetic experience; and the possibility of justifying aesthetic judgements. The role of Frank Sibley’s work in contemporary Analytic Aesthetics will also be assessed
