Dialogues on disability – Jesse Prinz

Shelley Tremain’s excellent series of interviews continues, over at Discrimination and Disadvantage. Today, she talks to Jesse Prinz about the urban ghetto, gentrification, culture, social cognition, art, depression, and much, much more.

My guest today is Jesse Prinz. Jesse teaches at the City University of New York, Graduate Center, where he is a Distinguished Professor of Philosophy and Director of the Committee on Interdisciplinary Science Studies. His research interests include emotions, moral psychology, social identity, classification, and aesthetics and emphasize the historical, social, and cultural factors that influence how we act and think. Jesse’s favorite recreational activities revolve around art, including watching films, going to galleries, writing an art blog, and studying art history.
