OVERVIEW OF TOPICS

Class notes for 2019

(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”
