“Philosophy of art, the study of the nature of art, including concepts such as interpretation, representation and expression, and form. It is closely related to aesthetics, the philosophical study of beauty and taste.”
Most of what we experience in the world is the after-effect of creation. It’s interpretation, it’s criticism, and it’s opinion. True creation is born of nothing but the imagination, and it fuels the next iteration of philosophical study.
Whether art can be defined as one thing or another is a question not agreed upon in philosophical studies. What we do know is that art has the ability to change lives, often for the better. It is thought-provoking and quite often innovative.
The world is better for art, and art shines a light on the world that lets us see, even in the dark.
