About the course
The focus of this course is the historical development of aesthetics and the questions discussed by, for instance, Plato, Aristotle, Hume, Kant, Schiller and Hutcheson; questions which still today influence philosophical discussions about art and aesthetic experience. How do these historical texts illuminate the concepts and distinctions still central to contemporary aesthetics? How does the development of aesthetics relate to theories and influential developments in other philosophical domains? The particular texts studied each semester are chosen by the course director.
