Annamaria Contini’s article “Nelson Goodman and Project Zero: art, cognition, and education” was published in a special issue of the journal "Studi di Aesthetic" (eds Annamaria Contini & Lorenzo Manera) on “Aesthetic Education”. The article reconstructs in an interdisciplinary perspective a little-known but very interesting chapter both for aesthetics and for the history and theories of education. The protagonist of this chapter is one of the most influential figures in contemporary aesthetics and analytic philosophy in general: Nelson Goodman. In 1967, Nelson Goodman founded Project Zero, a program of basic research into art education, which, even today, is an international reference point. This article reviews the relationships between the theses set out in Languages of Art and the most original results obtained by Project Zero between 1967 and 1971, when Goodman was the director. Thus emerges the role of general symbol theory in developing an educational approach that attempts to overcome the dichotomy between art and science, between the emotive and the cognitive. The article also analyzes the effects of Goodman’s participation in Project Zero on his aesthetic-philosophical reflections, using it to interpret both the exemplar function taken on by art in Ways of Worldmaking, and the emergence of new concepts such as that of “implementation”.
