Research Topics in Aesthetics and Art - PHIL4105

Philosophy of art is concerned with the nature of art, its relation to intention and interpretation, and what role notions such as representation, expression and value play in elucidating its importance and interest. In this unit we shall engage with the most recent scholarship in the field to explore these issues and the key question of the relationship between aesthetics and art.
