Example text

5 This view puts into the question the very rationality of the scientific enterprise, and necessitates resorting to psychological and sociological factors in order to explain the way we value scientific products. This view that the value of created works cannot be objectively assessed rests on the assumption that such works are discontinuous with the tradition from whence they originate. This assumption has, in the course of the preceding chapter, been shown to be false. In this chapter, it will be argued that there are standards for assessing creative products.

For the purposes of analysis, the factors have been discussed as if they were discrete and separate, but in reality it is difficult to separate them. The value of a work of art is the product of a complex interplay of such factors, which affect each other in addition to influencing art, and changes in art likely affect some of them, as well. The preceding analysis may help to explain how we can value innovative works as well as those which conform to an existing tradition. In the latter case, the works fit into a specific framework which is characterized by rules of technique, style, and execution.

The entire painting is composed of these elements, however, and all of them are surely necessary in order to constitute the form. Thus the form cannot really be separated from the work as a whole. Perhaps what Bell means is that one must attend only to the formal aspects of works and not to their representational characteristics, and at times his arguments support this interpretation. s He claims that representational works distract both the artist and spectator from the formal aspects of a work by arousing emotions of life in a domain in which they have no place.
