Art is not philosophy embodied. Arthur Danto’s account was something along those lines, in an end-of-the-road kind of way.
However, I can’t put any distance between myself and the view that art and philosophy are complementary accounts of the world that use labor, temper and function to model chunks of the world we thought we knew.
The world always comes first.
Art is the highest form of philosophy. When you can paint the relative truths in any color you wish to invoke the highest forms of appreciation, you become that much closer to what we idealize as God. It is not essential to use axioms or any jargon that has been laid out to limit the scope of philosophy. Great post!!
