  • Temporality and intergenerational thinking in aesthetics

    • Authors: Emily Brady
      Abstract: Environmental changes on a vast scale have motivated philosophers to consider problems related to intergenerational justice and future generations of people, nonhumans, and the earth they inhabit. How should the field of aesthetics respond'  The aim of this special issue of “Studi di Estetica” is to create space for scholars to bring temporality and intergenerational aesthetics more deeply into the field. The articles here are focused on temporality in art, nature, modified environments and relationships between them. In this introductory essay, I explore, first, how temporality features in the phenomena of aesthetic experience of environment, in living and nonliving things, creatures, situations, places, settings, and processes. Second, I address how the resources of the aesthetic subject (senses, imagination, emotions, and knowledge) grapple with environmental temporality and the future. To conclude the essay, I sketch out what it means to show “aesthetic concern” for future generations by drawing on ideas from environmental virtue aesthetics.

  • The inner life of time. Nature across generations

    • Authors: Pier Alberto Porceddu Cilione
      Abstract: This contribution proposes to reflect on a different way of considering the link be-tween temporality and nature, between aiôn and physis, in dialogue with the words and works of the Italian sculptor Giuseppe Penone. The basic idea is the following: we will not be able to essentially determine our cognitive and experien-tial relationship with nature, until we are able to know, experience and represent the time inscribed in being itself. The philosophical tradition has developed its conception of temporality mainly along two lines: a “cosmic” line, of a physical, objective temporality, and a “phenomenological” one, of a temporality as an in-ternal articulation of human consciousness. Through the archaeological and conceptual excavation carried out by Penone, we will ask ourselves what it does mean to take care of the “subjective time of things”.

  • Sustainable pasts, edible futures. Learning to craft a livable world
           through plant-techne

    • Authors: Harrison Farina, Cassaundra Hill
      Abstract: It is provocative, but not uncommon, to compare the work of art to a plant. Art is inseparable from the aim to pass on knowledge to future generations, just as plants strive to reproduce. This paper forwards the art-plant hypothesis that views works of art and plants not only as structurally similar, but teleologically united. We look to two models of art to test this hypothesis: earthworks of the land art movement, and the ancient Greek concept of craft or techne. Plant grafting serves as an example artform that is instructive for crafting a more sustainable world. We approach plant grafting as a sustainable technology in an age of genetic monopolization, and as a powerful metaphor for our common roots and responsibility to create a better world.

  • The preservation of the Bosc de Tosca: complexities, challenges, and
           intergenerational aesthetics

    • Authors: Remei Capdevila-Werning
      Abstract: This paper explores the aesthetic aspects at play in the preservation efforts in the Bosc de Tosca to gain insight in the role of aesthetics in preservation of natural heritage. The preservation of landscapes entails a complex balancing between aesthetics and sustainability as preservationist decisions based primarily on ap-pearance may be at odds with pressing environmental concerns. If the area to be preserved is a constantly evolving and lived landscape, the interventions enacted on the place may affect the current appearance and the way in which the area is lived now and in the future. By resorting to the issues discussed in intergenera-tional aesthetics, this paper aims to show how including the potential aesthetic experience and values of future generations may help in making more aesthetical-ly and environmentally sustainable decisions. The paper begins with a description of the Bosc de Tosca and its surroundings, its metaphysical status, and a de-scription of the preservation approaches at play in the area. It then presents the main stakes of intergenerational aesthetics. It ends by discussing specific aspects of the preservation of the Bosc de Tosca area and aesthetic interventions to show the complex relationship between aesthetics and sustainability and how inter-generational aesthetics can contribute to both theory and practice of preserva-tion taking into account environmental concerns.

  • The principle of mutuality. An art-based approach to environmental

    • Authors: Ermelinda Rodilosso
      Abstract: My work aims to focus on the intersections between aesthetics, intergenerational values, and climate change while exploring some core questions. How do aesthetic values interact with the construction of social and intergenerational values' Can the aesthetic experience of art have any influence on our attitudes toward the environment' These questions are related to the broader question: is the aesthetic experience of art connected to the aesthetic experience of nature' The thesis underlying this paper is that aesthetic appreciation of nature and art mutually influence each other. To prove this claim, I propose a Deweyan and pluralistic approach to environmental aesthetics that interacts with the fields of neuroaesthetics and intergenerational thinking. The key concept on which my proposal rests is the Deweyan connection between aesthetics and experience.

  • Radioactive futures of environmental aesthetics

    • Authors: Mario Verdicchio
      Abstract: One extreme example of intergenerational environmental change is given by nuclear waste. The radiation from a typical nuclear waste assembly will remain fatal for humans for millennia, creating the problem of communicating a warning about hazardous repositories to people so far in the future that we cannot assume any common ground with them in terms of languages and cultural contexts. This poses limitations to solutions proposed in the context of semiotics. The need for communicating danger and for keeping future people away from certain sites may be tackled from a more sensorial and aesthetic perspective. Given the size of nuclear waste repositories, and the problem of keeping people at a distance, the dimension at which the problem must be tackled is environmental. This work argues for an exploration of what environmental aesthetics, despite and perhaps thanks to all the ongoing definitional and conceptual debates in the discipline, has to offer.

  • A missed encounter between species. The interplay of scientific realism
           and aesthetics in Painlevé’s cinematographic experiments on the octopus

    • Authors: Silvia Casini
      Abstract: Jean Painlevé’s films blend aesthetic concerns and scientific realism operating a micro-turn within the broader cinematographic turn that occurred in the sciences in the 20th century. By engaging with his films on the octopus, an animal studied to illuminate human consciousness and firmly grounded in the popular imagina-tion through literature and the arts, this article demonstrates how Painlevé em-braced a politics of life organised around the concept of a missed encounter be-tween life forms.

  • Ripensare la bellezza artistica

    • Authors: Filippo Focosi
      Abstract: In present times, the notion of beauty finds itself in a strange situation. On one side, it has undergone a sort of new renaissance since the last decades of the XX century, thanks to the works of several philosophers and aestheticians. On the other side, it is a common loci both in aesthetics and art history that beauty has disappeared from modern and contemporary art, especially when visual arts and instrumental music are concerned. One of the most effective arguments in sup-port of this thesis maintains that there is no connection between normative and descriptive judgments of beauty. I am going to argue that such connection exists, and that it lies in the intermediate role played by the properties of harmony and appropriateness, which belong to the aesthetic as well as to the non-aesthetic realm. This will help us to free the notion of beauty from the charges of ambiguity and abuse, and to restore its relevance in XX and XXI centuries arts.
