Brady, Emily Professor


My research and teaching interests span aesthetics and philosophy of art, environmental ethics, eighteenth-century philosophy, environmental humanities, and animal studies. My philosophical approach moves between the historical and contemporary, as I seek to interpret past thinking about nature, environment, and the arts for a contemporary context. In current research, I explore interactions between aesthetics and ethics, specifically through other-regarding attitudes toward the natural world, e.g., forms of aesthetic attention, humility, wonder, natural beauty, and the sublime. In earlier work, I focused on the place of imagination, perception, and emotion in aesthetic experience of environment.
