Expanded Course Description
We will examine five basic views about the nature of art and aesthetic experience that have been dominant in the Western philosophical tradition. These include conceptions of art as (1) imitation, (2) emotional expression and communication, (3) form, (4) institutionally-defined artifacts, and (5) consummation of human meaning and experience. The question arises whether any one of these theories adequately covers the full scope of the arts throughout history and across different cultures, or whether we have to combine all five into a more comprehensive view of the role of art in human existence. The study of the nature of aesthetic experience sheds light on how humans make and experience meaning. Texts will range historically from the Greeks up through 20th century hermeneutics. Examples of arts will be drawn from painting, sculpture, poetry, music, dance, and architecture.
