Art Wellbeing Institutions

Living in an Imaginary World. When Rachel Stein (not her real name) was a small child, she would pace around in a circle shaking a string for hours at a time, mentally spinning intricate alternative plots for her favorite television shows.

Living in an Imaginary World

Usually she was the star—the imaginary seventh child in The Brady Bunch, for example. “Around the age of eight or nine, my older brother said, ‘You're doing this on the front lawn, and the neighbors are looking at you. You just can't do it anymore,’” Stein recalls. So she retreated to her bedroom, reveling in her elaborate reveries alone. As she grew older, the television shows changed—first General Hospital, then The West Wing—but her intense need to immerse herself in her imaginary world did not. “There were periods in my life when daydreaming just took over everything,” she recalls.

Convinced that she was crazy, she consulted six different therapists, none of whom could find anything wrong with her. Videos in the Mind's Eye.

Values Commitment. What is the point of art.

What is the point of art: lecture given at Duff House 18/7/98.

what is the point of art

First I would like to say that the dichotomy between artistic and scientific creativity is false. Artists, scientists and indeed philosophers are all engaged in evolving new descriptions of the world that are more enabling than the pre-existing interpretations. We should be considering 'what is the point of creative thought and action' as opposed to repetitive actions resulting from an unquestioned acceptance of already established concepts.

The dictionary gives as its first definition of art: that which is not nature. It is perfectly valid to start by questioning what the point is of the entirety of human culture: from Plato to pottery and from armchairs to atomic theory. So what is the benefit that has caused culture to survive. I will take an example from science. Let us consider how creative individuals differ from others.
