Philosophy Salon
Thursday, April 18th, 4:15-5:30pm
Williams College Museum of Art Reading Room
 
This week we will discuss art and interpretation. Must art be interpreted in order for it to have importance to us? Does the question, “what is this piece of art saying?” force the art to justify itself in the wrong terms? What is the alternative to interpretation?
 
Read Susan Sontag (1964) “Against Interpretation” (22 minutes) or listen to it read aloud (30 minutes).
