Art and Truth in the History of Aesthetics
PHIL 335
Fall 2006 not offered
Crosslisting: COL 335

This course is an intensive consideration of some primary classical and modern texts on issues of truth and cognition in relation to art. Questions considered include the differences between aesthetic 'knowledge,' on the one hand, and scientific and historical knowledge, on the other; the relationships between artistic intention and artistic meaning and between artistic truth and the evaluation of works of art; the roles of style and genre in artistic representation--and what the limits of artistic representation are.
