This is a unit in philosophical and applied aesthetics, with a particular focus on film. It is concerned both with the nature of aesthetic experience and the arts, as well as the way in which film (and other modes of artistic expression) shape or reflect experience, structure perception, and reveal important truths about human life and its larger context.
