The executive committee of the European Society for Aesthetics is happy to announce that the winning essay of the 2020 Fabian Dorsch ESA Essay Prize is "Aesthetic Judgement and Aesthetic Understanding" by Jeremy Page (University of Uppsala). The committee considers the essay to be an important contribution to the debate about the nature of aesthetic judgements and appreciates an original way of connecting the aesthetic judgement with a holistic understanding of the artwork. Jeremy will present the paper (or its further development) at the ESA conference which has been rescheduled for June 21 - 23, 2021 in Tallinn.
Winner of the ESA Logo Design Contest Announced
After thorough consideration, the executive committee selected a logo proposal by Fernando Infante del
Rosal. The logo, chosen out of nine entries to the contest, was selected for its originality, variability, and
playfulness. We are convinced it well reflects the values of openness, clarity, and diversity that the Society
cherishes. We look forward to seeing this logo in use. We would like to thank all the contestants for their
work. You can find the winning proposal here.
