THIS IS A PAST EVENT.
Amanda Corris, assistant professor of philosophy, Wake Forest University will speak on “Perceiving Wildness” Thursday, Nov. 17, 2022 at 5:00 p.m. in Tribble Hall B316.
Abstract: Experiencing the wildness of nature can be exhilarating, awe-inspiring, or even terrifying. But how might we characterize our perceptual experiences of wildness? How do the ways in which we perceive wildness shape our cognitive, psychological, and emotional states, and in virtue of what do we perceive wildness in these ways? In this talk, I argue that a key aspect of these experiences is perceiving wildness as being self-sustaining, conveying a sense of autonomy, relationality, and perhaps even selfhood.
