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.
The ESA Proceeding 2020 are to be published in spite of the fact that the conference has not taken place. If you had an abstract accepted and would like to publish your full paper in our proceedings for this year, please do send that to firstname.lastname@example.org by 1st November 2020.
