On Nihilism

I was pleased last week to entertain my old friend and co-author Ole Martin Skilleas, Professor of Philosophy at the University of Bergen. In addition to some good food and wine, we spent long hours at my dining room table, sketching out two new projects: the first, a paper replying to recent reviews of our ‘The Aesthetics of Wine’ (by, for example, Kent Bach), who we believe misinterpret what we mean by ‘appreciation’. Second, a new book length project that broadens our work out to general aesthetics, but with a focus on what we take to be a key concept: aesthetic expertise. We drafted a full proposal that will be submitted in the next week or two!
