Title: New Ontologies of Art

Advisory Editor: Adam Andrzejewski (Uniwersytet Warszawski)

Mail: adam.epoche@gmail.com; rivista.estetica@gmail.com

Deadline for submission: January 30th, 2019

The aim of this special issue of “Rivista di Estetica” is to shed light on the role of ontology in contemporary aesthetics and the philosophy of art. Ontology of art is flourishing, with a plethora of papers appearing each year dedicated to this area. It is commonly believed that ontology of art is the main field in aesthetics. This is not surprising since many (if not all) aesthetic questions presuppose some level of ontological inquiry. On the other hand, lasting achievements in this area have proved elusive. The artworld constantly brings forth new art objects and practices that undermine established ontological categories and concepts. This indisputable fact is a trigger for new investigations within and beyond traditionally understood ontology of art. Central questions/topics for this issue will be: Do we (still) need ontology of art? How can ontology of art help in understanding or experiencing artworks? What is the ontology of emerging art forms? Can ontology of art be influenced by other disciplines such as law and science? Do intuitions play a central role in the ontology of art?

“Rivista di Estetica” warmly invites papers to these and related questions that reconsider the value and methods of ontology of art – broadly understood – by exploring new concepts and fields of inquiry.
