Philosophy of Art

In this course, we will investigate the nature of artworks and the role they play in our lives; we will focus on specific problem cases and concrete artworks in order to answer these questions.

In this course, we work with visual, performative and literary mediums and think philosophically about the nature of art and its relation to other human experiences. We ask philosophical questions about the nature of beauty and art, interpret them, and think through aesthetic theories and and thinkers. We will examine the intersection of aesthetics with ethics and politics.
