About the Speaker

Prof. Sedivy received her Honours BA in Psychology from the University of Toronto and her PhD in Philosophy from the University of Pittsburgh. Her primary research and teaching interests are in the philosophy of mind, especially the philosophy of perception, in the philosophy of art and in the later work of Ludwig Wittgenstein.

She has just published Beauty and the End of Art: Wittgenstein, Plurality and Perception, which uses her approach to perception and her understanding of Wittgenstein to offer a new understanding of beauty and art while also addressing the question whether the tradition of Western art came to an end with the end of modernism. She is currently working on two books, a research monograph on perception Perception, Understanding and Aesthetics, and an edited collection on the work of Kendall L. Walton, Art, Representation, and Make-Believe: Essays on the Philosophy of Kendall L. Walton.
