Philosophy and Art History Research Seminar meets weekly in term on Thursday afternoons to discuss a paper by a visiting philosopher, art historian, or a member of our academic staff.

This week's speaker is Professor Joseph Schear, is a Professor in Psychology, Philosophy and Linguistics at Christ Church, Oxford University.

"'The Original Bond': Sartre's Theory of Intersubjectivity" Sartre claims in Being and Nothingness that le Regard (the 'gaze', or the 'look') is the fundamental form of intersubjectivity. This claim has long been a target of criticism, from Merleau-Ponty to Thuenissen to Honneth, but it has not been widely understood. I develop an interpretation of Sartre's claim and consider its merits.

The seminar will be followed by informal drinks at Top Bar and a meal.
