Freud said beauty has no obvious use, but civilization could not do without it. Still philosophers are worried about beauty taking a back seat in a world that measures success in terms of money and predictable results. Aesthetics is the philosophy of art and this course will focus on the thinking of Roger Scruton, who believes that beauty is fundamental to our lives as rational beings with aesthetic interests and sensibilities. We are engaged by the force of artistic creations and it enhances our capacity find ways to lead an active and meaningful life. This is an in-person course.
Christos Gianopoulos teaches philosophy a the University of Maine at Augusta. He is a graduate of Bowdoin College with advanced degrees from American and Syracuse Universities.
