AestheticsUnknown - 2004
"This program examines Western philosophy's engagement with visual and performing arts. The ideas of key figures in the shaping and understanding of aesthetics- Plato, Joseph Addison, Francis Hutcheson, Lord Shaftesbury, Kant, Hegel, Schopenhauer, Nietzsche, Wittgenstein, Morris Weitz, and Dewey, as well as Leon Battista Alberti, Stendhal, Schiller, and Tolstoy- are presented, and pivotal writings, including Aristotle's Poetics, are addressed. Columbia University's Arthur Danto and Princeton University's Alexander Nehamas offer keen insights into the interactions between artist, artwork, and audience as they have evolved over the centuries"--Container.
