"The School of Athens" Midterm Project

(H3) I'm not sure if anyone is a fan of art, but I was thinking about doing the midterm on the painting "The School of Athens". It's a mural with a ton of famous philosophers and thinkers. It has a lot of material to work with. Let me know if anyone is interested.

  1. Interesting. What exactly did you have in mind?

  2. (H3) A brief analysis of the history behind the painting, possibly the painter's philosophy as well. Then each member can pick a couple philosophers or thinkers to go more in depth into. Also how they are portrayed in the paintings describes the person. I did an art project similar to this so I have a little background info that could come in handy. Basically a coglomeration of analyses of multiple philosophers.

  4. It sounds interesting but what I am worried about is that it will end up being more of just a history report than one that requires any actual philosophical thought on our part?

  5. (H3) I think we could work around that. Maybe we could make it more of a flow chart of ideas. How one influenced the next. Definitely could make it more philosophical than historical.
