Philosophy: Shakespeare vs. Britney Spears – What is Art?

The definition of art has always sparked controversy and I too had many discussions during Philosophy classes about the subject.  The usual outcome was: “we agree to disagree” and “anyway philosophy never gives you a definitive answer”.

One of many questions was: If you go to a museum, do you need background knowledge about the artwork presented there in order to appreciate it?

I’ll be thrilled to read your thoughts on this. There is a nice philosophy game on this subject on TMP Online (The Philosopher’s Magazine). Have fun!

    Heh, I’m not sure Britney Spears qualifies as an “artist” in any sense of the word ;)
