IMP 2010 - The Arts and Sciences in Theory and Practice

This course is an inquiry into the nature and purpose of the historic set of disciplines comprising liberal learning with the goal of determining the intellectual passions they share, the methods and canons unique to them, and the prospects for articulating a unity among them. The course seeks to attain this goal by looking at theoretical issues such as the nature of verification and meaning, and by examining critically the actual conversations among the scholars of the arts and sciences fields over points of agreement and points of divergence.
