Suppose you have a hypothetical machine that predicts the future and conveys...

Adam Gazdalski - Triptych Theory of Art 2006' The problem presented in this paper is not, “what is art?” but rather, try to give more supportive ground consisting of opposing viewpoints by asking, “Why is it we argue over it’s use?” By taking an empirical-outsider’s perspective to the problem we can see three general values of art...
