The British Avant-Garde: A Philosophical Analysis - The British Avant-Garde: A Philosophical Analysis ABSTRACT: British Avant-Garde art, poses a challenge to traditional aesthetic analysis. This paper will argue that such art is best understood in terms of Wittgenstein¡¦s concept of "seeing-as," and will point out that the artists often use this concept in describing their work. This is significant in that if we are to understand art in terms of cultural practice, then we must actually look at the practice. We will discuss initiatives such as the work of Damien Hirst, most famous for his animals in formaldehyde series, and that of Simon Patterson, who warps diagrams, e.g., replacing the names of stops on London Underground maps with those of...   [tags: Art Philosophy Essays] 3203 words

The Development of an Intimate Relationship - “Most of our lives consist of socializing with others, beginning new relationships, and strengthening old ones.

The Use of Compression in My Life Had Stood a Loaded Gun by Emily Dickinson - The Use of Compression in My Life Had Stood a Loaded Gun by Emily Dickinson Emily Dickinson is quoted as writing to Samuel Bowles that "the old words are numb—and there a'nt any new ones" (4). This absence of variety in Dickinson's life urged her to redefine the words that already existed by creating more or less of an emphasis on certain words. She achieved this effect by omitting key words and dislocating punctuation in a sentence and therefore giving new meaning to them. In her poem My Life had stood—a Loaded Gun--, her use of compression gives more force to each fragmented sentence, breaking it up into almost metaphoric terms of the components of the gun itself....   [tags: My Life Had Stood a Loaded Gun] 1016 words
