Subject

The Postgraduate Programme “Philosophy and Arts” is characterized by its innovation and pioneering approach. Designed for graduates of Higher Education, both domestically and internationally, who seek a deeper exploration of the intersection between Philosophy and the Arts. The program offers the unique opportunity for concurrent and sequential study in both fields.

A key objective of the programme is to underscore the enduring significance of the relationship between Philosophy and the Arts, a connection that has been prominent since the era of ancient tragedy and remains relevant to this day. Within the realm of the Arts, the MA goes beyond general theoretical perspectives, focusing specifically on examining the interplay between Philosophy and Theatre, Film, and Music. Furthermore, it aims to analyze the Arts and theoretical discourse surrounding them as activities occurring within distinct institutional and theoretical frameworks.

Simultaneously, the programme aims to emphasize that public theoretical discussions on the Arts can be both engaging and enlightening. Additionally, it strives to illuminate the intricate and multifaceted institutional relationships that define art, the manner in which artistic representations introduce novel aesthetic practices and innovations into established institutional roles, and the role that aesthetics and art assume in shaping, perpetuating, and redefining social differentiations and cultural norms (such as the influence of gender on aesthetic perception).

Lastly, the programme seeks to delve into specific instances arising within this context, including the relationship between Philosophy and Science, as well as Literature.
