PHIL 321 - PHILOSOPHY OF BEAUTY
This course will be a comprehensive survey of Aesthetics, the Philosophy of Beauty. Aesthetics is the philosophical study of judgments of taste and beauty. Art (for example, visual art, music, literature, or architecture) and nature are prominent themes in Aesthetics. This course will survey different topics in Aesthetics, and we will all become philosophers. Some questions we will ask ourselves are: What is art? Is art necessarily beautiful? Is beauty objective or subjective? What does it mean to have an aesthetic experience? We will read ancient, modern, and contemporary works from Western and Non-Western Philosophy.
