PHI 3700 - Philosophy and the Arts: Variable Topics

Credits: 3

Prerequisite(s): PHI 3320 or PHI 3500 is recommended

Description: This course is an examination of some of the most intriguing and illuminating points of intersection between philosophy and the literary, the performing or the visual arts, including film. It may address philosophy on the arts (issues relating to ontological status, truth, interpretation, authorship, and self expression); or philosophy in the arts (literary texts, performance pieces or artistic works that explicitly invoke philosophical problems or evoke philosophical doctrines in their portrayal of social or psychological realities); or philosophy as art problems connected with meaning, representation and form in philosophical works, including across multiple media).

Note: This course may be repeated for credit under different topics.
