PHI 2999: Ethics and the Arts (2021-2022)

View all PHI classes

This course is primarily concerned with understanding aesthetic value. Is beauty an objective quality that a thing either has or does not have, or are aesthetic judgments merely expressions of personal taste? What sorts of things should we take into account in evaluating art? What is the proper function of art, and of the art critic? Should the government fund art?
