Pan Gongkai: Dialogue with Richard Shusterman on Philosophy, Art, and Life

Preface by Else Marie Bukdahl


In this dialogue with Richard Shusterman, Pan Gongkai discusses the relations of art and philosophy, while elaborating his theories of art as “Misconstruction“ and “Transfermation of Mind“ by applying these two theories to the recent artistic work and aesthetic ideas that Shusterman has been presenting in China.
