Learning Objectives

Considered as an advancement in aesthetic studies, the course aims to examine relevant issues for both philosophical and literary and artistic disciplines.

We will study a central concept of aesthetics, that of mimesis, in the classical conceptions of Plato and Aristotle. We will then consider the criticisms that in contemporary times have been moved to mimesis from both an artistic and a philosophical point of view. The notion of fiction, which is very studied by analytical aesthetics, will be examined both as correlated and as opposed to that of mimesis. Finally, we will evaluate in what terms these two forms of representation contribute to the knowledge of the world and of themselves.

Program

The course will address the following topics in the following order:

Art, mimesis, and truth in Plato's Republic (books II-383C 376th, 386th-398B III, VI 511th-509b, 514a-518d VII, X 595th-608B).

Mimesis, tragedy and cognitive value of the artwork in Aristotle's Poetics (chaps. 1-15, 23, 25).

Criticism of the concept of mimesis in contemporary aesthetics, in particular by N. Goodman, Languages of Art (chap. 1).

Artistic representation, truth and self-knowledge.
