Art, Philosophy, Science, infact all the disciplines in my opinion are a form of mimickry. They just that different mediums and areas of concentration. Being a form of mimickry doesn't make it boring or dull. It should still be considered as creative as an original because nothing can be original if it is derived from the idea and impressions of the world itself. The only way any artist can express originality is by the medium that he/she uses. Choosing to paint in order to express something is original, even though the thing that the painting represents isn't.


I am still confused about the way we are making the transition to the literary part of this course.
