Elizabeth A. Scarbrough
PHIL 200
Seattle Campus

Topics in Philosophy

A study of philosophical topics at the introductory level. The content of the course is entirely at the discretion of the instructor.

Class description

This topics-based course will focus on the aesthetics of everyday life. Much of Western aesthetics has focused on the appreciation of fine art but there has been recent interest in extending this discussion to more pedestrian, or everyday, objects of aesthetic attention. This class will address such topics as the aesthetics of: food, sports, rock music, nature, horror movies, personal style, and more. One other class in philosophy (which required a paper) is highly recommended.
