Look at You! Outward Appearance and What We Make of It
Rob van Gerwen (Department of Philosophy, University Utrecht)

Dr. Rob van Gerwen will explore the core values at the heart of why we are in search of how others see us. Gain new insights into what outward appearance means. From permanent to temporary interferences such as cosmetics and bodybuilding; everything can be strengthened or disturbed. But is it really what we make of it?
