“Anti-Realism is no flight from science, it’s a flight into the comforting arms of science.”
“Categories of science are created in much the way that artists create paintings and sculptures. ”
” In art we can see the role of the mind in calibrating reality and selecting boundaries.”
“I always show cute puppies at the end of the talk because it makes people think the talk was better than it is.”
“Appreciation is sort of an emotional or affective state.”
“In our society we learn to see a museum as a place to appreciate art. So when you see something in a museum you know how to look at it.”
“When you talk about the art world you talk about a practice of viewing or consuming art.”
“So this will be very therapeutic for me, and very unpleasant for you.”
