On Beauty

Download: Audio

Speaker(s): Professor John Hyman, Dr Elisabeth Schellekens

Recorded on 15 May 2013 in Wolfson Theatre, New Academic Building.

What, if anything, do different manifestations of beauty have in common? Does it make sense to apply the concept of beauty to them all, and if so, are there actually different kinds of beauty?

John Hyman is professor of aesthetics and fellow of Queen’s College, University of Oxford and editor of the British Journal of Aesthetics.

Elisabeth Schellekens is senior lecturer in philosophy at Durham University and co-editor of the British Journal of Aesthetics.
