LH305 Aesthetics

4 credit(s)
This course provides an intensive study of questions and issues that are both generated and answered by a variety of art forms, including literature, painting, sculpture and music. In studying the nature and role of the imagination, and the process of embodying that imagination in art, the course continues the inquiry into epistemological questions about how one comes to know the world that were raised in earlier honors classes about the classical world and scientific reasoning. Students will consider a number of significant literary works; paintings and sculptures from different cultural contexts; and significant works of music to address such questions as the nature of art, its role in interpreting the world, and how it represents or creates what we understand of our world or culture. As part of this inquiry, students will be asked to produce and reflect on their own works of the imagination.
