  1. AESTHETIC JUDGEMENT Theory of Knowledge

  2. AESTHETIC JUDGEMENT • What is aesthetic judgement and what is its sphere? • Are all humans equally competent judges in the sphere of the arts? • Is beauty or artistic significance entirely in the eye of the beholder?

  3. AESTHETIC JUDGEMENT • Are there rational ways of deciding on the merits of works of art or is it the case that it is just a matter of personal taste? • How can differences in aesthetic judgement be settled?

  4. AESTHETIC JUDGEMENT • What is the influence of the following on a person’s capacity for perception of artistic merit: • Tradition • Ideology • Religion • Morality

  5. AESTHETIC JUDGEMENT • Are the arts progressive? Is the new necessarily better? • Do the arts and literature matter or are they merely optional pastimes? If they have a significant role in human lives, to what extent is some social and political control of the creation and the consumption of artistic work inevitable?

  6. AESTHETIC JUDGEMENT • What does ‘art for art’s sake’ mean? • Is it possible that artists are not fully aware of the meaning of their works? • Is it useful to view art is a language?

  7. AESTHETIC JUDGEMENT • How is it that people seem able to enjoy and appreciate art from different cultures? • Is originality essential in the arts? • In what ways does technology influence the arts? What is lost or gained aesthetically by computer generated art?

  8. AESTHETIC JUDGEMENT • To what extent and in what ways might the arts be regarded as a representation of reality? What kinds of art might be seen as ‘realistic’? • Does art, or can art, tell the truth? If so, is artistic truth the same as truth in the context of the natural sciences, the human sciences, or history?
