Learning outcomes

Through the guided reading and discussion of some classical texts in the history of aesthetics, or through individual study, the acquisition and the ability to re-elaborate the main notions developed within aesthetics as a philosophical discipline are aimed at.

Program

Title:
«The death of art and the tragedy of living». Hegel’s aesthetics and modernity.

Syllabus:
The first part of the course deals with different relationships between mimesis and ratio focalizing on some of the fundamental passages in history (Plato, Aristotle, Descartes, Rationalism, Empirism, Baumgarten). Furthermore, even fundamental concepts of contemporary aesthetics, such as the sublime and the genius in their Kantian and Goethean form, will be examined. This will be followed by an analytical lecture of Hegel’s Aesthetics, which is a milestone of philosophical thought. The analysis will start with the principal categories of the tradition of aesthetics and arts. Afterwards some of the principal moments of Hegel’s aesthetics, above all the so called “End of art”, will be examined with the aim of individuating vital moments for the construction of a modern aesthetics, which might be able, at least partially, to give answers to the questions that characterize both the practice of arts and the reflection on it. Also the differences between the traditional version of Hegel’s aesthetics and the notes taken by his students during his Berlin lessons (only recently published) will be taken into account.

No prior knowledge and skills are deemed necessary.Literature:

Examination Methods

ASSESSMENT METHODS AND CRITERIA

Due to the Coronavirus pandemic, and in accordance with the University of Verona guidelines, during the 2020 summer session the assessment modality will be modified as follows: online oral exam.

The assessment of the learning outcomes involves an oral test, during which the issues discussed during the course and studied in the texts will be developed. The exam aims at ensuring knowledge of the topics under discussion and the ability to apply the concepts and logical methodologies to the various issues proposed.

This indivisible oral test is about the whole program and consists of a two-part interview - one with the teacher and one with one of his collaborators - and tries to verify:
- the depth and breadth of the knowledge gained;
- the property of language;
- the ability to systematically connect knowledge;
- analytical and argumentative ability.

The vote is expressed in marks from 18 to 30/30.

ERASMUS students are requested to contact the teacher at the beginning of the courses to agree together the teaching methods and the assessment tests.
