Curriculum

Markus Ophälders is an associate professor of  aesthetics at the Department of Human Sciences. He was born in Poughkeepsie (N.Y./United States) from German parentage. He has studied Philosophy, Psychology and German Literature in Berlin, Milan and Bologna and since 2011, after teaching Aesthetics at the University of Milan, he teaches Aesthetics and Philosophy of Art and Music at the University of Verona, where he also directs the Research Centre ORFEO - Sound Image Writing.
His studies focus mainly on problems of aesthetic theory, philosophy of history and politics as well as philosophy of music in the German philosophical reflection of the nineteenth and twentieth century. One of the central issues concerns cultural studies and the changes in the structural and cultural aspects of society in the current conditions of power, masses, technology, alienation and reification.
He has published numerous essays dedicated to Romanticism and German Idealism as well as to the Frankfurt School and to specific problems in modern and contemporary literature and music.

Skills
Topic Description Research area
Critique of Culture (Cultural Studies); Modern and Contemporary Music; Literature of the Eighteenth and Nineteenth Century Culture is a problem that, over the last 200 years, has increasingly moved to the center of reflection, which is obviously a cultural moment, too. In fact, if on the one hand it is through culture that one educates and forms minds and consciences, it is undeniable that it always involves a bit of barbarism. It has been argued that it is necessary to survive the culture, that we need to push barbarism to the end so that a new culture can be born or, more simply, that, after Auschwitz, it was no longer possible. Especially literature and music have addressed this dialectic, especially in the 20th century. Especially in present times, in the face of encounter and the clash of different cultures, these issues acquire an ever greater weight. Radici e culture della contemporaneità
