    The Department of Philosophy welcomes Allen Carlson presenting "What is a Sound Natural Aesthetics for Conservation Policy and Land Management?"
    Show Event Details
    Full Description: The Department of Philosophy welcomes Allen Carlson, professor emeritus at the University of Alberta, presenting "What is a Sound Natural Aesthetics for Conservation Policy and Land Management?" Recently a number of environmental philosophers, realizing the importance of aesthetic appreciation in our relationship with the natural environment, have claimed that, as one prominent environmental philosopher puts it: "a sound natural aesthetics is crucial to sound conservation policy and land management." In light of such claims, the question of the nature of "a sound natural aesthetics" warrants consideration. The question has been addressed by several different accounts, ranging from time-honored approaches such as the picturesque tradition and landscape formalism to more recent points of view. This presentation will examine these different positions, arguing that, concerning the question "What is a sound natural aesthetics for conservation policy and land management?" some approaches are more promising than others. Free and open to the public.

    The Department of Philosophy welcomes Amy Kind presenting "Imagining Under Constraints."
    Show Event Details
    Full Description: The Department of Philosophy welcomes Amy Kind presenting "Imagining Under Constraints." As Hume has famously claimed, we are nowhere more free than in our imagination. While this feature of the imagination suggests that the imagination has a crucial role to play in modal epistemology, it also suggests that imagining cannot provide us with any non-modal knowledge about the world in which we live. In this talk, Kind rejects this latter suggestion. Offering an account of imagining that I call "imagining under constraints,” she provides a framework for showing when and how an imaginative project can play a justificatory role with respect to our beliefs about the world. That we can be free in our imaginings does not show that they must proceed unfettered; as she argues, our ability to constrain our imaginings in light of facts about the world enables us to learn from them. The important upshot is that the imagination has considerably more epistemic significance than previously thought. Free and open to the public.

    Full Description: David Howitt, a member of the Denison class of 1990, will speak about his new book,"Heed Your Call: Integrating Myth, Science, Spirituality, and Business." "So many of us suffocate in our cubicles; we’re afraid to become the hero of our own life story. We need a modern-day manifesto for the innovator whose creativity is stifled, the job hunter losing hope, the spiritual seeker afraid of financial success, the professional who no longer feels connected and fulfilled. Life is not an either/or prospect—you can have it all," says entrepreneur David M. Howitt in “Heed Your Call: Integrating Myth, Science, Spirituality, and Business. “ Armed with an uncanny ability to understand the lifeblood of a fledgling entrepreneur, Howitt, a business mentor who has closely guided companies and Fortune 100 leaders, has a proven track record of helping small business owners distill their passion and use it to grow the brand to its maximum potential, creatively and financially. He shares the stories behind his and others’ unique success in 11 real-world lessons in his new book. Howitt accompanies readers “along their journey to help them bridge the gap between commerce and their heart-centered desires. We all have the extraordinary within us, waiting to be released.” He shares his uncompromisingly honest personal experience and examines the foundation-altering paths taken by some of today’s most impressive entrepreneurs on their way to becoming heroes of their own lives.

    Show Event Details
    Full Description: The Department of Environmental Studies presents an exhibition, "Farmscapes," a juried exhibition from the spring semester Farmscapes class. The 2014 Farmscape Juried Exhibition celebrates the work of sixteen Denison University students who have spent a semester learning about the American food system through the lens of a camera. After visits to farms, meat processing facilities, and a produce distribution center, mill, commercial greenhouse operation, dining service kitchen, and creamery, each student submitted his or her own best work. Our juror, local artist Christian Faur, chose 34 images for the exhibition. In his remarks about the show, Mr. Faur notes that “the images the students took beautifully held the essence of the places they visited during these winter months. Their photos offer us a range of intimately framed textures and patterns along with a glimpse into the day-to-day life of the people and the places where our food comes from.” Along the same lines, Abram Kaplan, the instructor of the class, reflects, “each year, the artistic quality of the class improves, and this year, I have been particularly impressed with the students’ eye for the particulars of our food system. They have been working in the relatively new arena of arts-based research this term, and have had their sensibilities challenged on many levels. It is very gratifying to see the aesthetic discernment they have attained – most of them with no artistic background before this course!”
