Week 8


Inour group discussion on Thursday we talked a lot about art and what its purposeis.  Someone offered up that is wasjust for pleasure, just to look at and feel.  If that were all art was then what would be the point, itwould just be a luxury with no real purpose.  A lot of people would argue that art is a necessary part oflife.  One way in which we identifyintelligent beings is by their creation of art.  Art was a component that lead to civilization and was thenenhanced by it.  If art were justfor pleasure and enjoyment then it wouldn’t be this important to humanexistence.
