In his new book "Strange Tools," philosopher and cognitive scientist Alva Noe posits an original theory of art and its value in our lives. Noe joins us to discuss the ephemeral nature of how we perceive and understand art. He'll also talk about limitations of the contemporary trend of studying art through the lens of science, or neuroaesthetics.


Alva Noe, professor of philosophy, University of California, Berkeley; author of "Strange Tools: Art and Human Nature"
