Harry Binswanger is the Conference Keynote Speaker, appearing at our Banquet on October 8. He will explore Ayn Rand's hypothesis explaining the communicative power of music expressed in her brilliant essay “Art and Cognition,” and explore its relationship to her famous description of art: "A selective re-creation of reality according to an artist's metaphysical value-judgments." Dr. Binswanger will also participate in an extended panel discussion on musical esthetics where he will be joined by other Conference participants including David Berry, Lee Pierson, Thomas Shoebotham, and Stephen Siek. Audience participation will also be encouraged.
Note: A banquet ticket must be purchased to attend this event.
