Strange Tools


What is art? Why does it matter to us? What does the fact that it matters to us as much as it does tell us about ourselves? In this talk, the author of Strani Strumenti (Strange Tools) argues that art is a reorganizational practice, one that it is necessarily emancipatory and renewing.

Alva Noë is a writer and philosopher living in Berkeley and New York. He is the author of Action in Perception (MIT 2004), Out of Our Heads: Why You Are Not Your Brain and Other Lessons from the Biology of Consciousness (FSG 2009), Varieties of Presence (Harvard 2012), Strange Tools: Art and Human Nature (FSG, 2015), Infinite Baseball: Notes from a Philosopher at the Ballpark (OUP 2019) and  Learning To Look: Dispatches from the Art World (Oxford 2022). His newest book The Entanglement: How Art and Philosophy Make Us What We Are (Princeton) will be published in June 2023. He is a Professor of Philosophy at the University of California, Berkeley, where he is also a member of the Center for New Media and the Institute for Cognitive and Brain Sciences. Noë is a 2012 recipient of a Guggenheim Fellowship and a 2018 recipient of the Judd Hume Prize in Advanced Visual Studies.  He is currently Chair of the Department of Philosophy at Berkeley and is also an Einstein Visiting Fellow at the Free University in Berlin.
