CORVALLIS, Ore. – Portland radio host Brandi Parisi will discuss notions of the sublime on Tuesday, Feb. 21, as part of the Medical Humanities Table Talk series at Oregon State University.

The free, public event will begin at 4 p.m. in Memorial Union Room 211.

Parisi is morning host for All Classical Public Radio in Portland. Her talk, “Sublimity and Selfhood: Kant, Beethoven & the Buddha,” will address questions of the sublime in philosophy, and whether sublimity can be created or if it is something, like pleasure, that can only be experienced as a byproduct of other experiences.

Parisi has degrees in communications and philosophy from Ohio University and Purdue University. She teaches philosophy at Portland Community College and yoga at several spots around Portland.
