Philosophy of Art and Language (PHI4215.01)

Theresa Morris

This course in aesthetics begins with the Ancient Greeks and then follows a predominantly Continental trajectory to contemporary philosophers of aesthetics.  While we will investigate thinkers writing on art, music, and drama, our eventual focus will be the philosophy of language and literature, beginning with Plato’s Phaedrus and including selections from Heidegger, Maurice Blanchot, Luce Irigaray, Julia Kristeva, and Derrida, among others.
