2007 Gifford Lectures

Stephen Pattison has presented the 2007 Gifford Lectures in Aberdeen. His lectures were entitled “Seeing Things: From Mantelpieces to Masterpieces,” and they focus on the challenge of altering the way we conceive of vision and our relationship to visual artefacts. The titles of the six lectures are: “Ordinary blindness”; “Touching sight”; “Sticky objects”; “Getting personal”; “Drawing near”; and “Loving things.”

As always, the lectures will eventually be published. But for a limited time, the full texts of the six lectures can be downloaded here.

Thanks to Philip Ziegler of Aberdeen for letting me know about this.
