Host

School of Religion and Philosophy (St. Petersburg, Russian Federation)

The program of the Summer Courses is a conceptual introduction to Western Art through visits to some of St. Petersburgs Museums and places of interest. Analytical tools of higher level thinking are to be developed in response to classics of the world´s philosophy, art, and literature. To be explored are: Plato, Rumi, Dostoevsky and Nietzsche, Goethe, the Iconography of Byzantine, Russian, Central Asian and East Asian (Japanese, Indian, Tibetan) Art; the concept of beauty in terms of "measure" as a mean (arete), the aesthetics of Pythagoreans to contemporary phenomenology such as Terry Eagleton, the aesthetic (aisthesis) as a discourse of the body, a revolt against the tyranny of theoria; and "harmony" as the quintessence of Sinism (related to Daoism, Confucianism, and Buddhism). Finally, the seminar investigates the classical genesis of aesthetic creativity in contemporary Russian Art and Literature.
