I had in mind anything that sheds some light on the subject. If you want to
discuss your own views, that would be interesting and I would appreciate it.
Some people on the list are reluctant to publicly discuss their personal
views but do not mind discussing the views of other scholars, and that would
be interesting as well. As I said, I'm torn between the view that art cannot
be defined by anyone versus the view that not everything is art just because
someone says it is art.
