Another Quick Thought

Just re-watching Richard Carrier’s talk Is Philosophy Stupid? again.  I think the implication is that we need a “philosophy revolution” the same way we had a “scientific revolution” back in the 1700s.

Also, I personally think we similarly need an “art revolution”!  ^^

Art could get far more advanced than it generally is currently.  Part of that is the lack of systemic vision.  Currently there is a very unorganized art world where experiments or prototypes are treated as finished products.  Also too much incomprehensible or meaningless art.  Plus I think there’s a bit of an epidemic of making art that is just making a little commentary on some other piece of art/aspect of the art world.

People need to view doing art as a kind of engineering.  It can go as far and as advanced as the engineering that goes into stealth fighter planes or whatever.  And I also think there needs to be more scientific study into how to make good art, and artists need to be more connected to that knowledge.

Ok I’ll end this here before it becomes a longer rant…
