  • The American philosopher George Santayana once noted that beauty is far more central to our everyday lives than it is in philosophy. And true enough, aesthetics has always been a sort of fringe discipline within philosophy, lower in status than such fields as metaphysics, ethics, and theory of knowledge. In this lecture, Contemporary American philosopher Graham Harman will explain why this usual picture is mistaken, and show why aesthetics deserves to stand at the very center of philosophy.
