A cosmological aesthetics: feelings and events in A.N. Whitehead

Giulio Piatti

Abstract


In Whitehead’s philosophy, perception is enlarged to every entity of the world: “prehensions” and “feelings” constitutes reality as a series of events. In other words, Whitehead builds a “cosmo-aesthetics”, mixing up aesthetics – in its etymological sense – and cosmology (beyond Kantian interdiction). Aim of this work is to study the implications of these intuitions according to which what we perceive (and feel) in the world should serve as a basis for a speculative analysis of the world itself.
