arts base is egoistic

Recommended Posts

that is, knowledge based.  if you have aristotlean knowledge it's simply up to your reason to tease out symbols.  so even if an artist, you have to be educated or your art will be anti-life.  Your will then is the egotistic part

If I had "aristotelian knowledge"  I would believe 1. a ten pound weight falls twice as fast as a five pound weight  2. women have fewer teeth than men  3. The earth does not move and is in the center of the universe and 4.  there is no inertia. That is what "aristotelian knowledge"   would  bring to me.   No thanks.
