PHL 211 - Philosophy of Art


4 credits
Examines the role of art in human life through a critical engagement with the history of aesthetic concepts and artistic practices. Questions addressed in the course include: What is the nature of beauty? What is art’s connection to truth and knowledge? Is art primarily sensuous or intellectual? What is the relation between beauty and morality? Is there a universal standard of taste? We will strive to understand the nature of art and aesthetic experience through the illumination and application of diverse approaches and perspectives.  Approved for University Studies (Exploration - Strand E).
