PHIL 1700 Aesthetic Practices and the Self

Aesthetic practices are common vehicles of self-expression and therefore essential to the establishment of pe3rsonal and collective identity. This course examines the philosophical importance of aesthetic significance. Grounded in current literature on “everyday aesthetics”-a branch of philosophy of art- the course considers issues such as fashion ant the fashioning of oneself, gaming, eating practices, the role of popular art and entertainment in our lives, with goal of exposing students to issues in aesthetics that are often overlooked by the academic community. Additionally the course invites students to express their own identity through such practices, allowing for both their expression and a deep reflection on their everyday live.
