NEW! Consider famous philosophers’, artists’ and critics’ views about the nature and importance of Beauty for individuals, societies, and civilizations. Survey the writings and art from Plato, Aristotle, John Dewey, Peter Schjeldahl, David Shapiro, John Berger, Louise Bourgeoise, Agnes Martin, Picasso, as well as art from primitive times, ancient Greece, Renaissance Europe, the Romantic era, the 20th century, and today to see how they exemplify different philosophical views about the nature and importance of Beauty. Each class includes a short introduction, and then becomes a discussion class in which every class member’s views will enrich everyone’s understanding.
