March 23: Immoral Art

Does it even make sense to call a song, a novel, or a painting moral or immoral? If so, can an immoral work of art be considered a good work of art? What, after all, is the relationship between art and ethics? We will read and discuss passages by contemporary philosophers of art such as Noël Carroll.

Philosophy for Lunch happens every Wednesday from 12–1PM, Dickson Hall, 430.

What is P4L?  Students and professors close-read and discuss a few of the greatest passages in the history of philosophy. 

Who's invited?  No preparation or previous knowledge of philosophy is needed. Everyone is welcome!

Should I bring anything?  Bring a beverage, and if you're hungry, bring your actual lunch.
