PHIL 375 - Realism and Representation in Art

FC ARHU WADV
4 credits
In this course, we will examine competing philosophical accounts of pictorial representation and the nature of realism in the visual arts and cinema. With reference to specific works, including many from the AMAM collection, we will consider whether pictorial representation depends on resemblance, whether recorded images are inherently more realistic than hand-made images, and whether realistic art has distinctive aesthetic, moral, and cognitive significance.
Prerequisites & Notes: Two previous courses in Philosophy
