The Importance of Being Subtle

Posted on October 15, 2013

We praise art for all kinds of thingsfor being beautiful, striking, insightful, and not least of all, we praise it for being subtle. But what is subtlety? How do we identify it, and why should it be valuable?

Alexandra King, Wheaton/Brown Faculty Fellow in Philosophy, will present answers to these questions and offer her thoughts on why subtleties outside of the artistic sphere might be valuable too.
The talk is scheduled for Thursday, October 17, 2013 at 12:30 p.m. in President's Dining Room.  All are welcome to attend.
