  • Beauty And Art
    1,502 words
    A Brief History of Aesthetics is the theoretical study of the arts and related types of behavior and experience. It is traditionally regarded as a branch of philosophy, concerned with the understanding of beauty and its manifestations in art and nature.

Yet, what in a field with a hazy line in between being classified...

    I. Reading Clive Bell Sometimes I wonder about Clive Bell. After all, the man was obviously no fool. On the contrary-his every credential, every little detail of his career tells us otherwise: his life as the brilliant young student educated at Trinity College, hob-nob bing with other future intellectual heavyweights such as Lytton Strachey, Sydney-Turner, Leonard Woolf; the young scholar (described by friends as being "a sort of mixture between Shelley and a sporting country squire 3/4) who, al...

Alchemy was simply a chapter in the history of natural philosophy. The history of the development of alchemy is quite sket...
  • Good Knowledge Of The Two Languages
    305 words
    Translation is a representation or recreation in any language of what is written or said in another language. Translation is an art, a bilingual art. Like painting, translation enables us to reproduce the fine thought of somebody, not in colours, but in words, in words of a different language. Translation is also said to be a kind of science because it has a whole set of rules governing it and certain objective laws to go with. Skills and technique are needed in order to attain clearness of styl...

  • Teachers In The Arts
    539 words
    Can you imagine a world based around scientific equations or every answer being referred to the periodic table? At every meal, or every person you see, the conversation would revolve around the same topic. "Did you find the velocity for how long it would take a ball to drop?" What if science were a bore to you? How would survive with that lifestyle? Science can be diverse, because it's branched out into four main groups (biology, chemistry, physics and botany.) But in the end, how long can you t...

If art is focused upon more than science or science is focused upon more than art there will not be an equal balance of appreciation between the two fields. There is no art without...
