“The true test of the greatness of a work of art is its ability to be understood by the masses.” - “The true test of the greatness of a work of art is its ability to be understood by the masses.” The statement "The true test of the greatness of a work of art is its ability to be understood by the masses;" is highly problematic. Art in itself has an ambiguous definition that combines concepts of aesthetics and personal emotion. When one thinks of art, it becomes clear that the definition of art is too abstract. Art can be anything from cavepaintings to heiroglypics and pottery. Does this mean that art as it is defined is too broad....   [tags: Art] 1086 words

The view that an IQ test accurately determines, or even estimate, and individual’s intelligence is very arguable, and has not been without controversy. IQ tests work on the notion of Symbolic Logic, and since this is not correlated with intelligence, there is uncertainty over what is being measured.

Depending on the underlying genetic architecture, gene-based approaches can be more powerful than traditional individual-SNP based GWAS. For example, if a gene contains more than one causative variant, then several SNPs within that gene may show marginal levels of significance that are often indistinguishable from random noise in the initial GWAS results....   [tags: Genetics] 2003 words
