Aesthetic Experience of Video Games

Aesthetic Experience of Video Games

Respond to one of these prompts and be clear about which one you are referring to (and please also remember that you must post two replies to other students’ posts every week in order to get full credit):

PROMPT #1: TWO WORLDS. Imagine two words, said G.E. Moore, one beautiful, one ugly. Imagine the beautiful world as having “mountains, rivers, the sea, trees, and sunsets, stars and moon … all combined in the most exquisite proportions,” and the ugly world as “one heap of filth, containing everything that is most disgusting to us … without one redeeming feature.” But also imagine that neither world will ever be experienced by any human being — no one will ever live in either one, or even see it. If only one world could exist, which should it be? Moore thought that it would be better to have the beautiful one exist than the ugly one, even if there were no possibility of human experience of either world. Is Moore right? What reason could be given for preferring the beautiful world to the ugly one when neither world would ever be lived in or even seen by human beings? Or does any reason ultimately make covert appeal to human experience? Does beauty have intrinsic value, or not? Explain your answer.

PROMPT #2: ART AS PSYCHOTHERAPY. Gladys is a college sophomore suffering from the despondency and various dissatisfaction, tensions, listlessness, and so on that many sophomores share. she goes to see her college counselor, who, after listening to her litany of complaints for an hour and consulting a textbook on aesthetics, arrives at a prescription: “I recommend that you take in some art — music, poetry, drama, dance, etc. It’s good medicine. Experiencing art relives tensions and quiets destructive impulses; it resolves (lesser) conflicts within the self, and helps to create a harmony, an integration, in the personality; it refines perception and discrimination; it develops the imagination, and along with it the ability to put oneself in the place of others; it fosters mutual sympathy and understanding, and offers an ideal for human life.” Is the counselor right that art would improve Gladys’s condition? Explain your answer.

PROMPT #3: COMPUTER ART: We saw that computers can play a role in the production of digital art. Can computers (robots) also make computer art? Is it conceivable that computers can not only produce but also appreciate art? Explain your answers.

PROMPT #4: VIDEO GAMES: In your mind, what is the aesthetic value you gain when you play your favorite video game? Explain your answer.…

our paper must include the following sections, clearly labeled:

  • Introduction
    • Introduce readers to your topic; include a brief preview of what you will accomplish in this paper. (approximately 150 words)
  • First Argument
    • Present the best argument on one side of the issue. (approximately 150 words)
      • Express your argument in standard form, with the premises listed one by one above the conclusion.
  • Defense for First Argument
    • Support the first argument as well as you can, using academic sources to demonstrate the truth of key premises. You may also choose to clarify the meaning of key premises and to explain how your reasoning supports the conclusion (approximately 250 words).
  • Opposing Argument
    • Present the best argument on the other side of the issue (approximately 150 words).
      • Express your argument in standard form.

  • Analysis of the Reasoning (approximately 350 words)
    • Evaluate the quality of each argument, addressing whether key premises are true and whether the conclusion logically follows from them.
    • Analyze arguments for any fallacies committed or for any biases that may influence either side. Do you feel that one argument makes a much stronger case than the other and why? (There is no need to “take sides,” only to assess the quality of the arguments.)
