The question of the nature and value of style has long exercised artists, designers and philosophers, for it makes all the difference whether style is defined historically, in terms of epoch; socially, in terms of causes; existentially, in terms of individuals; or formally, in terms of media. In this course we use a method of formal analysis to arrive at conceptions of style proper to individual works of art, photography, fashion, literature, architecture and furniture and graphic design.
