Atmospheres, Urban Sites, and Metaphysics

22. 9. 2021, Dům U Minuty (Skautský institut)

Atmosphere is one of key ideas in contemporary aesthetics. Contrary to the widespread view, I argue that an atmosphere is not a “quasi-thing”, or “half-thing”, but rather a relational feature of a given site that exists only when it is experienced by someone. At the same time, my discussion of the metaphysics of atmospheres will provide better understanding of the idea of urban atmosphere as characteristic of a particular site as well as a whole city.

Adam Andrzejewski is a philosopher affiliated the University of Warsaw. His research is focused on analytic aesthetics and philosophy of art, everyday aesthetics, and theory of popular culture.
