Tainan National College of the Arts-Graduate Seminar:
Histories of Aesthetics and the Arts
Instructor: Leo C. Chen, Spring 2004
This graduate seminar surveys the developments of aesthetics in the variegated histories of the arts, which include painting, architecture, music, theater and performance, literature, philosophy and film. Paying equal attention to the conditions of technology and culture, production and consumption, the concrete and the abstract, this seminar connects and explores the theoretical discourses thus generated from the histories of arts with an attempt to provide a framework that allow both theory and history of aesthetics be discussed, analyzed and understood against the backdrop of the issues of styles and interpretation between aesthetics and the histories of the arts. By looking at both the theory and history of aesthetics together, this seminar explores the development of the ways in which arts, through out ages and across geographic borders, are produced and consumed. Beyond the economic structures that are treated with careful contextualization when needed, this seminar situates aesthetics by the ways meanings are assigned and interpretations achieved which can in turn constitute therefore an important chapter in human intellectual history in general and a history of aesthetics in particular.
Structure of the seminar is tripartite. Although generally following a chronologically linear manner, this seminar’s tripartite structure deliberately emulates the formal design of a triptych- three pieces of painting on wood blocks connected by two axils. Divided first by the mode of presentation conditioned by technology, the seminar consists of three major parts and they are respectively: 1. Traditional Aesthetics; 2. Contemporary Theories of Aesthetics; 3. Histories of the Arts.
The scope and depth of the covered materials are necessarily broad and deep at the same time, as it is generally considered mandatory requirement for a comprehensive education of aesthetics. The students are expected to immerse themselves, both horizontally and vertically, within the most bounty and rich realm of cultural representations and resources in the history and theory of aesthetics. Upon completion of the class, the students are expected to be equipped with the necessary knowledge and tool for critical thinking for them to embark onto each and everyone’s journey into the world of the beautiful.
Seminar Requirements include: Mandatory class participation and discussion. Weekly reports. Mid-term exam. Mid-term paper. (2000 words) Final paper/project. (9000-10000 words). No pre-requisite required, but love of the arts a plus.

2000 per day of income without huge starting capital

文章icotrurce » 2009-10-09, 22:34

Good day, sun shines!
There have been times of troubles when I felt unhappy missing knowledge about opportunities of getting high yields on investments. I was a dump and downright pessimistic person.
I have never imagined that there weren't any need in large starting capital.
Nowadays, I'm happy and lucky , I started take up real income.
It's all about how to select a proper companion who uses your funds in a right way - that is incorporate it in real business, parts and divides the profit with me.

You can get interested, if there are such firms? I'm obliged to answer the truth, YES, there are. Please be informed of one of them:
