Blackheath Philosophy Forum
on again this coming Saturday. May 5th.
Literature as Experimental Philosophy:
George Eliot on Truth and Realism
A talk by Moira Gatens
Professor of Philosophy, University of Sydney
In our era an idea is abroad that fiction has little to do with truth, and that novelists are a species of liar. George Eliot, one of our greatest 19th Century English novelists, considered her work in fiction to be both realist and truth-seeking. In one letter she referred to her writings as a set of experiments in life. Through an examination of some of her novels, this talk will endeavour to explain what Eliot meant by ‘realism’ and what is involved in her commitment to truth. Moira Gatens will argue that Eliot’s worldview still has much to contribute to moral philosophy today.

: : CRITIC, DEALER, ARTIST, CURATOR, COLLECTOR : :
How they co-operate or don't, how they put pressure on each other, or take turns to own the art. A forum on the different social actors and professionals in the contemporary art world, and their interdependence. The power of a work of art, the influence of critical evaluation, the role of the art market, the rhetoric of sales.
