2019 CLASS NOTES

ART & ORGANISM

CALENDAR for SPRING 2020

OVERVIEW OF TOPICS

(every year, notes are updated and revised to reflect new ideas brought to A&O from the literature and by students)

These notes document the way in which past seminars of A&O have unfolded / blossomed and indicate intended directions for 2020  Notes from 2018 and 2019 provide only a rough guide as to what to expect in 2020 because they reflect the specific interests of the participants in previous years.

The disciplinary core of the course remains the same: the spiral helix of “DEEP ETHOLOGY” (the integrative study of behavior) and “CAUSES AND CONSEQUENCES OF ART and AESTHETIC EXPERIENCE”


A&O CLASS NOTES for 2019 (to be replaced by daily notes for 2020 each week)

Please have your final Powerpoint presentation to me as soon as possible before the second day of exams (May 1), and your written report before Monday May 6.
