One week with
Prof. Winfried Menninghaus
Srdečne pozývame všetkých záujemcov na prednášky prof. Winfrieda Menninghausa (Max Planck Institute for Empirical Aesthetics, Franfurkt am Main), ktoré sa uskutočnia v dňoch 3.-6. 10. 2018 v miestnosti 3P1 s nasledovným programom:
October 3, 2018, 14:00, room 3P1 - The enjoyment of negative emotions in art-reception
Ever since Aristotle’s theory of tragedy, it is a key to poetics and aesthetics to explain why and how we can experience negative emotions in conjunction with feelings of pleasure. The lecture presents a new explanatory model for this issue and a series of empirical studies that tested this model. A special focus is placed on feelings of being emotionally moved.
October 4, 2018, 09:30, room 3P1 - What is and what does poetic language?
Poetic language use is far more wide-spread than typically assumed. Beyond poetry, it can also be found in ritual contexts, proverbs, commercial ads, slogans of all sorts and in everyday communication. Current linguistics nearly totally neglects this issue. The lecture presents our ongoing work towards a general model of poetic language.
October 5, 2018, 09:30, room 3P1 - 6-th International Workshop on Cognitive Aspects of Aesthetic Experience
Keynote speaker: Prof. Winfried Menninghaus (Max Planck Institute for Empirical Aesthetics): "Beauty"
Beauty is the key desideratum (though certainly not the only one) across all branches of aesthetics (philosophical, empirical, evolutionary). The workshop will discuss it from all angles, with a focus on the divergences as well as points of convergence between the approaches.
