(1) Art vs. Utilitarian Objects (2) Art & Philosophy (3) Is Art Subjective?
In this episode of Functional Philosophy, I answer the following questions:
02:53 - "You said that utilitarian objects are not art. But I have seen many utilitarian objects that are very attractive and interesting, even entertaining, to look at...?"
07:17 - "Why is it necessary to make aesthetics a separate branch of philosophy, next to important branches as epistemology and morality?"
10:07 - "While certain -important - aspects of art are objective, would objectivism agree that there are still parts, however minor, about art that can be subjective? Or is that more an example of personal taste and how much people like/enjoy it, not as much as the quality of the art itself?"
Functional Philosophy is the weekly Q&A podcast that helps you gain and strengthen the philosophical foundations required to achieve certainty, success, and happiness.
