  • AS PHILOSOPHY
    • 1 - REASON AND EXPERIENCE
      • Empiricism - Mind as a tabula rasa.
      • Rationalism - we possess innate knowledge
      • Conceptual Schemes - there is a predetermined framework by which we make sense of sense data
    • 2 - WHY SHOULD I BE MORAL?
      • Social Contract - a conventional agreement for our mutual advantage
      • Constitutive of Self interest
      • Overcoming Self Interest
    • 3 - TOLERANCE
      • Three Components : Objection, Acceptance and Rejection.
      • Is a liberal, pluralistic, tolerant society a good one?
      • An individual is not tolerant if they are indifferent, weak (not in a position to object) or indulgent.
      • What constitutes individual tolerance? Co-existence, permission, respect, esteem?
    • 4 -WHY DO WE VALUE ART?
      • INFORMATISM    - Art illuminates our experience, articulates a vision, portrays authentically, represents it's subject convincingly or faithfully.
      • EXPRESSIONISM - art is moving or captures a mood or feeling. Do we value the artists' self expression or are our own responses to the art the focus of our appreciation?
      • FORMALISM -  It affords a peculiar aesthetic enjoyment of 'form' : balance, structure, proportion, harmony, wholeness, 'significant form'.
