In this course, we will examine the nature of aesthetic judgment and aesthetic rules and reasons, with special attention to how these relate to the Acquaintance Principle. The Acquaintance Principle states that, in order to make a genuine or justified aesthetic judgment of something, you need to be acquainted with it. It?s often thought that the Acquaintance Principle is true, and it?s sometimes thought to support certain theories of aesthetic judgment over others. We will look at this connection, as well as the connection these issues bear to the also-common view that there are no general principles or rules in aesthetics.
