“…Although the play takes place within the Black community, the themes of alcoholism, parental

In Mikell Pinkney’s On the Historical Development of African American Dramatic
Theory; or, The Roots of Black Theatre Aesthetics, the reader is introduced to the dramaturgical
criteria for “serious” African American theatre which is that it is: about us, by us, for us, and near
us. These four tenants were introduced by W.E.B. Dubois and used to assess dramatic pageants
of his time and have steadily been used as a basis for African American modern

The gallery that I visited in the Museum of Modern Art focused on Social Realism, which consists of artwork created between the two World Wars. This period was defined by international political turmoil as well as the difficulties of a global economic depression. A number of artists in both Mexico and the United States used art to respond to these conditions; they created issue-oriented art that summoned awareness to the unfortunate and bleak circumstances that bounded them. Rather than abstraction they relied on realism to tackle the diminishing conditions of the poor and working class as well as to confront the political and social systems they believed were culpable. This style was

Definition Essay – Attempting to Define Art
Considering that last semester I took both History of Western Art and, in the philosophy department, Aesthetics, I would have thought that I am now in a better position than I was a year ago to answer the question, “What is art?” Going into the philosophy course I had the idea that art worked as a means of taking abstract values and placing them into concrete form. However, it soon became clear that there were many other praiseworthy things that could be said about art: it can be sublime, making us feel both the overwhelming force of nature and the overcoming strength of our free will (Kant); it bridges the natural and the ideal

friendship. Why do people take such short amounts of time to decide that they like someone? I think that is so fucked-up, especially since I do it myself. Something is seriously wrong with humanity if a person cannot go for an hour without a thought of their crush or lover popping into their head. And as much as society would like to deny it, romantic love is almost 100% aesthetics as opposed to compatibility, which is evidenced by a startling lack of homosexuality. Obviously the boys playing cards and smoking their mary jane behind the 7-11 get along pretty damn well, so why the fuck aren't they going out with eachother?

And the Critique of Judgment (Kritik der Urteilskraft, 1790), which looks at aesthetics and teleology. He aimed to resolve disputes between empirical and rationalistapproaches. The former asserted that all knowledge comes through experience; the latter maintained that reason and innate ideas were prior. Kant argued that experience is purely subjective without first being processed by pure reason. He also said that using reason without applying it to experience only

There was a particular scene in the film I liked which was the “Singin In the Rain” dance routine done by Don Lockwood (Gene Kelly). It was unique because it was well choreographed and especially done well in a “pouring” rain. A fact I liked about the routine was the use of diluted milk. The diluted milk in the water made the raindrops show up better in film. Camera angles were also placed really well providing an excellent view of the dance.

Romare Bearden is among the greatest artists of his generation. His complex and powerful works represent the places where he lived and worked which was in rural North Carolina, the urban area of the northern cities, primarily Pittsburgh and New York's Harlem, and the Caribbean island of St. Martin. Religious subjects and ritual practices, jazz clubs, and literature are dominant themes in his work. He usually gave sympathetic depictions of blacks in southern states. He believed that African American art should engage African American history, African aesthetics, black urban life and racism. Therefore, he created art inspired by African American traditions.

Orality vs. Literacy
Writing is the process of transforming verbal words into visual symbols that represent said word and can be discerned by others. At its basic level, literacy is a form of transferring information. Only when writing goes beyond merely being understandable and starts to fulfill needs for creativity and aesthetics, does it become more of an art than simply a way to move information. In contrast, storytelling can be done through multiple mediums such as writing to opera and ballet. Though these forms of storytelling work in order to communicate a tale from one person to another, it is my belief that and oral performance is the purist way to communicate a story.

Dewey published over 100 books during his lifetime, dealing with topics such as education, ethics, logic, metaphysics, aesthetics, religious experience, war, politics, and economics. He was often scorned by other philosophers who thought his philosophy was too concerned with practice and not concerned enough with theory or with traditional philosophical issues like epistemology (or \"how can we know\"), ontology (\"what is real\"), or traditional logic (\"what is truth\"). Dewey was quite blunt in his claim that \"Philosophy recovers itself when it ceases to be a device for dealing with the problems of philosophers and becomes a method, cultivated by

Munsterberg and Arnheim
Munsterberg and Arnheim have very similar views of cinema, art and the perceptions involved with viewing reality and art. Both theorists came from times when film was in need of defense as an artistic medium, and both came from the school of Gestalt psychology. These were big influences that led them both to form similar ideas on art, aesthetics, mental perception, reality, and film.
The purpose of art for both Munsterburg and Arnheim is the aesthetic qualities of the work itself, the consciousness of the medium itself and a lack of focus on the content of the medium. The use of the medium as an end in itself, a self contained work of beauty, is the

Discussion of art becomes appropriate at this point, since Marcuse was not referring to philosophy per se. Philosophy has limitations in that it is the theoretical half of Marcuse's formula, while tangible art, specifically literature, is the other. There is an interesting analogous relationship between the role of the proletariat, which Marx defined as the universal class, and Marcuse's emphasis on philosophical aesthetics, in that both are the tangible manifestations of desire for utopia which

Nathan Granner dealt with the fog beautifully; while I was coughing he was putting out notes that were well inspired by his dream depicted in the storyline. I think this opera is an awkward yet intriguing story with great uses of vocal and musical response. The musical climax is displayed when two young people fall in love and go through a whole relationship without saying a word. All of the actions are depicted through the music changing from retarnando to accelerando, with soft strings for love to powerful bass and trombones for anger. Any music analyst would have been pleased by the musical aesthetics of this production.

Matthew Arnold's poetry often wrestles with problems of psychological isolation. In "To Marguerite—Continued," for example, Arnold revises Donne's assertion that "No man is an island," suggesting that we "mortals" are indeed "in the sea of life enisled." Arnold wanted to establish the necessary truth of Christianity. Similar to Wordsworth, Arnold also called for a new epic poetry: a poetry that would address the moral needs of his readers, "to animate and ennoble them." Arnold's arguments, for a renewed religious faith and an adoption of classical aesthetics and morals, are particularly representative of mainstream

Over my nine years in law enforcement, I have been asked or “hinted” to do, say or act in a way I felt was wrong. I often would ask myself “What is the right thing to do?” I would be asked to plant evidence. To lie in court or on a report to make the person seem guiltier than the evidence already showed.
I always came to the conclusion of what the right thing was to do. I would not lie in court. I would not plant evidence no matter how badly I knew the person was guilty. To me, the right thing is doing what is right and getting a conviction or acquittal with a clear conscious.
