What can we understand as an aesthetic experience? Our objective with this lecture
is to think about how philosophy usually focuses on the question of aesthetic experience as a product of the relationship between sensitive perception, imagination and rationality, in order to reflect at the same time on the possibility of cognition given by the work of art and on the emotional participation in the artist’s expressiveness. For this reflection, we propose to think from both the way in which Aristotle clarifies the aesthetic phenomenon and from contemporary investigations in Philosophy of the Symbol and the Mind.
