AIAS Fellows' Seminar: Lucia Angelino

Collective Intentionality and the challenge of Collective Improvisation: A novel approach to the issue of collective intentionality on the edge between phenomenology and aesthetics

Info about event


Monday 9 December 2019,  at 14:15 - 15:15


The AIAS Auditorium, Building 1632, Room 201





How do individuals come to act, feel and think qua members of a team without a prior plan? In this talk I will address this question by looking at the kind of collective improvisation attained by the “free jazz” at the beginning of sixties. Combining theoretical work on the concept of collective intentionality with the analysis of a few study-cases my aim is to outline an extended and refined notion of singular-yet-plural intentionality — beyond current thinking in analytic philosophy — by drawing on the insights offered by the phenomenological tradition.


Short bio

Lucia Angelino is a research fellow at AIAS and a postdoctoral researcher in philosophy. After obtaining a PhD in phenomenology and 20th-21th century French philosophy from the University Paris 1, she was awarded a Marie Skłodowska-Curie individual Fellowship to continue her research in aesthetics at ULB. At the intersection of phenomenology and aesthetics, her project at AIAS aims at exploring a novel approach to the much-debated issue of collective intentionality beyond current thinking in analytic philosophy.
