Very Interesting & Interdisciplinary Applications

While I may not be a philosopher nor an aesthetics expert, Dr. Grant provides a wonderfully concise and engaging series on Aesthetics and Art- allowing for an interdisciplinary application of the topic to other realms of academia such as, Geography or Sociology.

The lectures are not only informative, they are also engaging and Dr. Grant speaks very well throughout the series.

The best aesthetics lectures I have ever downloaded

As the title says, these are the best aesthetics lectures that I have ever downloaded. Consider your mind blown. Boom.
