Philosophy of Art: Aesthetic Values in Art and Life

Plato's argument against 'art' in the "Republic" is not about 'art' at all. The course begins with Plato, examines how the philosophy of art has tried to respond to him anyway, and applies our conclusion to the contemporary situation of the arts and their relation to the rest of life.
