Truth and Truthfulness in Painting

Due to the current public health crisis this seminar has been postponed until a later date (TBA)

John Hyman (UCL)


In Truth and Truthfulness, Bernard Williams examines a “suspicion about truth itself”, which he claims is “very prominent in modern thought and culture”.  I shall examine a similar “suspicion” in the theory of art, and discuss the bearing of truth and truthfulness in painting on the theory of truth itself.

The London Aesthetics Forum (LAF) is a Forum of the Institute of Philosophy at the University of London’s School of Advanced Study. With lectures on topics in aesthetics and philosophy of art, LAF aims to stimulate philosophical reflection on art. Our events are free and open to all.
