3. Course contents *

This course deals with Western cultural history, from Antiquity up until the Industrial revolution. Special attention is given to art and architecture, and the connection between both. The interrelatedness of the sociopolitical, scientific, technological and cultural evolutions are discussed. It thus becomes clear that art and architecture never develop from a tabula rasa, but are always the products of specific historical circumstances.
