The Ideal of the Arts and Humanities: Music, Painting, Sculpture, Architecture, Dance, Literature, and Philosophy

The professions that exist within the arts and humanities typically have a twofold dimension:

  1. A dimension of appreciation and cultivation;

  2. A dimension of performance.

The first dimension is much more questionable as an area of professional knowledge, and its contribution to the quality of life is a likely domain for debate. The second dimension is much more objective and demonstrable.
