Guest Lecture by Richard Shusterman: Somaesthetics: From Pragmatism to Contemporary Art

This lecture defines the field of somaesthetics and traces how it emerged from my work in pragmatism and then developed into directions that link it closely to contemporary art and the idea of inquiry through artistic performance.
