Section 64920

  • Note: This course is for Parkside Residentail College residents. For D-clearance please email Prof. Ryan Boyd at ryanaboy@usc.edu Since Aristotle, philosophers have recognized that a well-lived life (what was sometimes termed a beautiful, ethical life) is tied inextricably to notions of the aesthetic and the beautiful; those parts of life that are enthralling, spiritually enriching, artistically compelling. WRIT 150: Issues in Aesthetics provides students with hands-on, workshop-intensive instruction in writing, critical reasoning, and analytical and rhetorical skills through the lens of art and beauty, affording students a deeper, richer, and more individualized insight into notions of the aesthetic.
