Why do some artworks speak to us whilst others leave us cold? What is the nature of aesthetic appreciation in the visual arts? By using artworks from the School of Art Collections, this course explores the philosophical aspects of art appreciation and introduces the student to some of the critics and writers who have been influential in aesthetics. Students are encouraged to evaluate their own aesthetic responses, appreciate those of others and to discuss these within the class. The module has a mix of seminars and historical lectures all designed to get you thinking, and debating, about why we choose to like certain kinds of art.
