Learning outcomes This unit aims primarily to operate with key concepts, theories and problems specific to philosophical aesthetics. This includes communication of definitions and historical developments of aesthetics. In the second place, we intend to question the possibility of integrating an activity of aesthetic realization within the phenomenon of art, design and contemporary communication culture.
Syllabus The contents unfold in two parts, each developing its own theme, studied by different authors: In the first part, the theme - Aesthetics, symmetry and pleasure - raised here by the theories of Descartes and Kant. In the second part, the course develops the theme - Nature and Art (design) - through the questions posed by Heidegger and Pareyson.
