2017 | Os fins da arte
The 13th International Congress of Aesthetics - Brazil, entitled “Os fins da arte”, aims to highlight recurring themes in philosophical aesthetics, elaborating the ambiguity in its title, namely “fins”, understood as "finalities", which refers to millenarian discussion about the uses of art in the past, present and future, and "the ends of art", which by its turn refer to the formulations of a possible end of art, as echoed by G.W.F. Hegel in Lectures on the Philosophy of Art.
