Learning outcomes

Workshop on Philosophy of Art and Music The workshop aims to give students who are actively involved in it a knowledge of philosophical thought that from the German eighteenth century onwards has been confronted in general with artistic practice and, in particular, with musical composition. In this sense, students enhance their knowledge of the main lines of Western aesthetics, by acquiring specific knowledge of certain philosophical theories and artistic, aesthetic or poetic practices. Students will also enhance their comprehension of the status of art, and the power of aesthetical experience to understand the world and transform it, thus empowering themselves with more autonomous judgement skills on specific cultural issues, such as artistic practice and, in particular, musical composition.
