That if your life is short and meaningless. It could be long and meaningless, or long and meaningful or even short and meaningful. We don’t have proof of any of that. So Nagel thinks that we are absurd human beings to a certain point and then when we get to that point we are considered silly. Just because once we get to a point where we are considered ridiculous or silly doesn’t mean we should give up on life and act like it’s a meaningless one.
However, while there are artworks that are appropriate for this, some artworks are not. ‘The Lottery’ falls into the former category. To begin with, the story lacks information. It sounds like a weakness, but it isn’t. As ‘The Lottery’ is a short story, the author doesn’t expound each and every detail.
The various amounts of information will also create differing opinions, making art never just have one right opinion. Neither is taking the two sides of an argument. John Mcphee states in Progression that 1+1=2.6 and that essays can have more than one opinion. Each opinion develops a deeper understanding. Therefore two opinions added together is not two.
Kunard (n.d.) points out that mostly critics were put off by the camera’s mechanical qualities; some believed that “art cannot be produced through a mechanical device” (p. 172). The debates on artistic merit of photography have continued to the present date. I can agree with C. Jabez Hughesthat a certain categorization is possible dividing photography into Mechanical, Art, and High-Art (Kunard, n.d., p. 161).I believe that much depends on the photographer and what he or she wants to convey, as well as their mastery of the device and an ability to do in picture what one keeps in mind. A truly artistic picture needs to possess an ability to stir emotions in the viewer and be skillfully made. Henry Fox Talbot made a passing remark about a broom leaned against a door frame implying that it could be equaled to art only due to its resemblance to Dutch masters who were known for
For Art, this barrier is his fragility and silence. His inability to speak symbolizes how others refuse to understand him. Those characteristics make it more difficult to be friends with him than it would be to befriend a flesh-and-blood person. In Art’s case, his condition of inflatability engenders a dislike of the unfamiliar in others. For this reason, it is easier for someone to merely make assumptions based on Art’s outward appearance and behavior than to put in the effort to foster a real relationship and become informed on his condition.
Malone attempts a persuasive style of writing but its effectiveness is questionable. He succeeds in creating an argument, but his call-to-action is ineffective. Considering the context, style, and other components, the target audience could not be properly persuaded. Kobutsu Malone’s “Narcissism and Spiritual Materialism: The New Age Legacy” does a dissatisfactory job of persuading its audience, New Age participants, due to his hypocritical ethos, aggressive pathos, and misguided logos. Malone’s main argument, materialistic values are vividly apparent in the New Age, failed to convince readers his opinion should be taken seriously.
Influences such as religion, cause the content to be not as reasonable. As a result, the photo provokes the reader to question whether or not the essay is one-sided with points only supporting its bias. The photo should not have been included as it threatens the author 's credibility as a reliable source. Moreover, the photo on page 114 is a recreation of a religious painting of the
This gives conflict to what art really is and what we as humans think is. Ironically to enjoy art we must unconsciously allow it to penetrate our should and enjoy without any inhibitions. There are many different interpolations to what we consider being a work of art, and there are many types of artwork. It 's believed that anything and everything that graces this earth is art. others argue that art takes talent, creativity, and vision to produce.
Cultural relativism has a variety of definitions, but the main idea is that a universal code of ethics does not exist--it varies culture to culture. Rachel’s examines cultural relativism in “The Challenge of Cultural Relativism” and argues that there are commonalities of ethics throughout every culture. Rachels sections off his argument to better explain what they believe. In this piece, they argue that cultural relativism is not a proper theory. They argue that it has many major flaws, but they acknowledge that parts of theory have some truth to it.
1.2 Statement of Significance Art can do lots of things that can create powerful and great changes in ourselves. Artist is someone that is so hard to read if we fail to understand them to interpret the underlying meaning behind their painting because it is their getaway to express their emotions and desires to the community. To accomplish this, the artists are communicating with the society by delivering their messages through their artworks. They do not communicate directly to the public by actually telling them verbally what they want to say and expect us to understand but instead they leave clues for us to find out what are they trying to convey from their works of art. A lot of people fail to see the roles and the importance of art in
