Can art be expressed as Human Reasoning Capacity?

Reading

This week’s assignment, instead of a summary, is the identification of the major points in the reading (“Expressiveness” by Susan Langer). The reading is not commented, but it is underlined, so that it is easier for you to focus on the most relevant parts. Please write a short text entry, 150 to 300 words, using bullet points.

Discussion

Hi, welcome to this week discussion!

What is due?

Please choose one topic (see below) and post at least one reflection and two comments to your peers’ reflections.

Why?

This assignment is meant to assess your capacity to understand and reflect autonomously on the contents that you studied, and your capacity to engage with different opinions and views in a respectful and fruitful way, collaborating with your peers for an inclusive learning environment.

How?

Please write:

1) One post on the chosen prompt, 100 to 200 words

2) At least two comments on your peers’ posts, 50 to 100 words each. One of the comments can be your reply to a comment you received. Comments can be on any topic, not necessarily the prompt you have chosen.

Please be sure that your posts are on topic, and your comments are respectful and constructive. See the rubric for details.

IMPORTANT: This is a group discussion; be sure that you post in your group, not in the general discussion. Only if you post in your group your submission will be graded.

PROMPTS

1) Do you think there is more truth in the idea that the beautiful is objective, or in the idea that it is subjective?

2) The institutional theory of art emphasizes the role of institutions and in particular of the “artworld” in deciding what art is. Do you think this applies in the same way to contemporary art and more traditional forms of art?

3) What is (or are) the most distinctive feeling (or feelings) that characterize(s) YOUR OWN aesthetic experiences?

4) Share your thoughts on any of the additional resources and how it relates to the topics of this week.
