PHIL 225 - Philosophy of Art

(3 credits)
Prerequisite: One 100-level, three-credit course in philosophy
This course examines philosophical questions arising in connection with the identification, interpretation and evaluation of art and its creation and questions such as: What is art? Is there a valid way to distinguish art from non-art and good art from bad art? Are there ways to establish the meaning of a work of art, or is all interpretation subjective? Do artists have moral responsibilities as artists? Should the government subsidize art? Offered alternate years. (Formerly PHIL 325) (CHUM; CWRT)
