Learning outcomes While sponsoring the understanding of Aesthetics and aesthetic as interpretative models for Cultural phenomena,this CU boosts the debate of themes that gather general interest,without overlooking the goal of stimulus to creative capacities of students in the milieu of their professional activities.
Students must: identify the main development stages of the sensitive condition of thought as that basic competence which will allow them to recover, in all of its extent, the self-comprehension of Aesthetics as a doctrine of sensibility; to recognize this other dimension of the aesthetic which is held to the theme of a demise of the ideal of an objectivity of taste; grasp the meaning of the ageless theme of the relation between Art and Nature and to understand the ontological claim for a rehabilitation of sensibility; identify de mutually requested features in Culture and Aesthetics.

Syllabus A – GOALS To define the origins and the concept of Aesthetics.
