|Aesthetica Preprint, 85 (April 2009)
The notion of "expression", which runs through Western culture and acquires centrality in modern aesthetics, has expanded into a very intense and complex element of contemporaneity. On this issue the Centro Internazionale Studi di Estetica has organized a seminar, entitled "Logics of Expression", which took place in Palermo on October 9-10, 2008.
The present volume, edited by Luigi Russo, collects the papers presented at the seminar, and more specifically: Salvatore Tedesco's "On the Theoretical Relations between Plessner's and Weizsäcker's Aesthesiology", Alessia Cervini's "The Face on the Screen: The Contribution of Cinema to a New Notion of Expressiveness", Andrea Pinotti's "Right or Left? Finding One's Way in Images", Giovanni Matteucci's "The Logic of Expression in Susanne Langer", Gianfranco Marrone's "The Brand between Classic and Baroque" and Lucia Pizzo Russo's "Expression: Empathy or Perception?".
