Art and Truth

Marcia Eaton's Aesthetics of Art
Artis—Naples Lifelong Learning


From ancient times there has been a philosophic debate about whether art leads us to or away from the truth. The argument continues to rage. Eaton will examine both ancient and modern approaches to this issue. What can we learn from art?

This presentation is part of Marcia Eaton's Aesthetics of Art lecture series.
