Modern and Contemporary Aesthetics
- Nicola Emery
What links exist between aesthetic experience and community? Aesthetic judgment, insofar as it is seen as capable of being universally shared, urges (to quote Kant) enlarged and unbiased thought. Does this apply to both the experience of landscape and the experience of art? Can we question these experiences of the beautiful and the sublime, in keeping with some contemporary thinkers, as a search for a community free from prejudice?
The course will be enriched by the 2017 session of the Max Horkheimer International Meetings.
