Katarina Felka: No praise for unknown cakes

Time Wednesday 7 June, 2023 at 13:15 - 15:00
Place HUM.H.119 (HD108)

The Research Seminar Series in Philosophy invites you to a seminar with

Katarina Felka, Graz, "No Praise For Unknown Cakes! What Is the Source of the Acquaintance Requirement For Statements of Taste?".

Abstract: Statements of taste appear to be subject to an acquaintance requirement. For instance, it seems that the sentence 'The cake is tasty' can only be uttered legitimately if the speaker has tried the cake. Various authors have argued that the acquaintance requirement is due to specific linguistic features of taste predicates. In the talk we critically discuss these proposals and reject them in favour of an epistemic account of the phenomenon, according to which it results from peculiarities of knowledge about taste.

All interested are welcome to participate in this seminar.
