“This lecture aims to present Neuroaesthetics by opposing it to some paradigms of conceptual art. The discoveries of Neuroscience and Neurobiology have questioned the conception of knowledge as language (restricted to the purely propositional field), thus rejecting some central theses of the dominant paradigm in the arts in the last century. In this sense, the discoveries of Neurobiology and Neuroscience have the potential to reposition aesthetics as an investigative field, proposing it as “knowledge and visual intellect”. The idea is to value the visual experience as a sensation and knowledge of the world. Thought in this way, Neuroesthetics has the potential to question the linguistic-philosophical approach taken by contemporary artists and proposes the image as a cognitive process that involves sensory, organic, biochemical and visceral processes”.
