Waiting for answer This question has not been answered yet. You can hire a professional tutor to get the answer.



In terms of your responses, the goal is to engage your classmates’ questions in a meaningful way. Don’t just agree/disagree/something in between…support your response. If a quote/passage was provided in the question, try and “unpack” it for us—in your own words, what do you think the author meant? Target a paragraph, minimum.

discussion board submissions/exchanges should also:

  • Be civil.
  • Be engaged.
  • Cite references and/or quoted sources, if applicable.
  • Be well-written. In other words, resist the typical conventions of electronic communication. Try to avoid being too informal, too personal, too much like you’re talking casually to a friend (even if you’re telling him or her how much you love philosophy and your “Meaning of the Arts” class!). We’re not tweeting here BTW LOL XOXO BFF.


* Write a response (4-8 sentences paragraph) to the following questions:


Q)  In the first chapter of "But is it art", Freeland mentioned about a girl, when she visited Mali, who was redesigning herself to apparently reflect western art. In this passage, would you agree Freeland is really expressing these people's form of art, or could she be mixing it up with rituals certain tribes may practice? Could you also argue about the type of audience She may have decided to choose to be represented in her book?


Q)    "but you must know that so much as poetry as is hymms to gods or celebration of good men should be admitted into the city. And if you admit the sweetened muse in lyrics or epics, pleasure and pain will jointly be kings in your city instead of law....."( p.290) Socrates states that Homer and his poetry are often thought of as a source of wisdom , however they are not exactly sure of how factual this is. Do you believe that poetry can lead to wisdom or is it just another imitation of reality?
