PSYC 3367 Psychology of Art (Fall/Spring: 3 )

Course Description

This course considers philosophical questions about art such as these: Can art be defined? Can art express emotion? Why do we enjoy sadness and fear in art but not life? Are aesthetic judgments just matters of subjective taste? What’s wrong with a perfect fake? We will focus on experiments from psychology that attempt to answer these questions with empirical evidence.
