Knowledge within arts is not objective & therefore not meaningful.
Outline a clear argument in support
- Knowledge within the arts may be mealiness in certain area’s of knowledge due their objective nature. An example of this is knowledge in natural science
- As art, by nature, is subjective, it can not be used as knowledge in natural science. As a rue of thumb, good science should not be biased, purely based on fact. This effectively discounts knowledge that can be discovered through the arts.
Outline a clear counter-argument
- Art often reflects the world/ society around them, thus being an mode of knowledge in history. Historians often derives knowledge of previous era’s from art, analyzing pictures and paintings done in order to understand and discover culture, lifestyles, beliefs, etc. This can seen through our knowledge found on Ancient Egypt. Vivid painting are often found describing different rituals unique to Ancient Egypt.
