Course programme

An Introduction to the Philosophy of Art

Modern Aesthetics

Led by Nigel Warburton, Senior Lecturer in Philosophy at The Open University.

Emotion and expression are key themes in this course which explores ideas from Romanticism through to the mid-twentieth century. Major thinkers whose work we will examine include Schopenhauer, Nietzsche, Collingwood, Benjamin and Heidedgger.

Each week we will discuss a reading from Cahn and Meskin eds. Aesthetics: A Comprehensive Anthology (Blackwell, 2008). You will also have the opportunity to think about particular works in the Tate Modern collection in relation to these ideas.

Time Course: 18.45-20.15
