CCFA 2000 - The Mind of the Artist

This course looks at the arts in new ways, and examines common views about the arts and creativity. For instance, what is the role of emotion in the creation and reception in works of arts? Are great artists prone to mental illness? What do we mean by genius and inspiration, and how do we recognize it? What (if any) such categories seem to be universal and which are culturally determined? What can art express, and how does it do so?
