How can art help us to predict the future?
Can there be a justification for watching and/or recording the suffering of others that we are unable to help?
If I think one artwork is better than another one, is that just personal taste, or is there any way of ranking which is more objective? Assume I have studied some art history… Tom
You were an artist and a philosopher, but Plato thought the two were incompatible. However there’s rarely an artist who doesn’t try to tease out some philosophical conundrum. Philosopher as artist is rarer. Would you agree + why?
Dear Iris, You wrote a lot about liberating and unselfing effects of art, and how good art can make you a better person. But – can you be someone who creates art (good art, hopefully) and be a bad person? (Picasso, Jimmy Page, Edmund Narraway?)
Okay, thank you
