I thought I'd bring this up, because I rarely if ever see issues like aesthetics or the humanities discussed here. This is the philosophy thread, right? Well, I think more different philosophical material should be discussed as opposed to the same tired subjects.
And now that I'm done soap-boxing, let's get on with the actual topic of the thread:
Is there "high art" or "low art"? Or, more simply stated: Is some art better than other art? But we involve ourselves with some more fundamental questions here: What is art? What are it's aims, if any? And if the collective base of work in the humanities itself ought not to be defined by it's functions and ends, but more as a medium, then what aims have artists had?
The UOD need not be very restrictive when it comes to this subject. So whatever argument you would like to make, go ahead and make it. It won't be unproductive for you to do so.
As for my own position, I would prefer to wait a bit and see what some of you write, before revealing my own thoughts whilst interacting with your arguments.
