INST 2211 - Radiohead Philosophy and the Meaning of Life

Hours: 3
For generations, the arts and philosophy have been deeply connected to one another as artists and philosophers have used their respective skills to challenge the status quo, disrupt normative modes of thinking, and push people to think and feel deeply about human experience and our larger place in the universe. Exploring the lyrics and music videos of the band Radiohead and considering their art as a serious mode of philosophical inquiry. Placing these ideas in conversation with other key philosophers - Plato, Aristotle, Confucius, the Buddha, Sankara, and Lao-Tzu - to see what these conversations may tell us about the search for meaning and purpose in human life.
