Philosophy Assignment - More on Aesthetics

Well guys, your comments on the previous assignment were pretty much on the mark, although not elaborate enough. But it does appear that you have understood the essence of the "sense of life". now to apply it in the context of Art, you need to read the next chapter and answer the following:
  1. Discuss the infallibility of the Sense of Life in comparision with the Kantian way of judging Art
  2. Discuss with one example the three kinds of abstractions Ms Rand talks about - Cognitive, Esthetic & Normative
  3. Why does a irrational man seek justiication from the work of art?
  4. What is the criteria for ethetic judgement according to Ayn Rand? Explain with an example other than from the book.
UNESCO Test tomorrow after college.
