Section 10 Group 3 Discussion

Today in class we listened to two presentations. The first involved morality. I personally enjoyed the part about the daughter next door drowning in the swimming pool... is it morally right to help or is that God's will? It was interesting thought for those who are religious. The second presentation was Machiavelli.

No philosophical discussions for today, other than our random chatters at the end of class.

    DQ: What is the most philosophical piece of art you've ever seen? Share your observations and thoughts with the group.

    Link: Homer Simpson creates a "masterpiece". Do you think it is art?

  3. FQ:
    (T/F) Spinoza's God cared about each and every human being.

    DQ:
    Do you believe art should be clearly defined? Do you believe any and everything should be able to fit into the definition of art? Explain why you think so.

    I love this picture, and now I can use it because it's finally relevant.

  4. T/F The Significant Form Theory suggests art forms produce aesthetic emotion.

    Is there a certain arm form that produces a certain emotion for you? Is so, what and why?
