Yet, granted that everyone understands that by this word "God" is signified something than which nothing greater can be thought, nevertheless, it does not therefore follow that he understands that what the word signifies exists actually, but only that it exists mentally.
Ribeiro, Anna Christina ed. Conventionalist definitions have been strongly influenced by the emergence, in the twentieth century, of artworks that seem to differ radically from all previous artworks. An Approach to a Theory of Symbols, Indianapolis: While discussions of sexual assault, gender-based discrimination and the importance of feminism in the 21st century remain permanent fixtures in contemporary discourse, never have these discussions penetrated the public mindset in quite the same way as they have this year.
Well, luckily for me, the Arthur Wiki is a tapestry of data ripe for analysis. Dewey observes that some who have denied art meaning have done so on the assumption that art does not have connection with outside content.
If so, then a separate canon and gynocentric definitions of art are indicated BattersbyFrueh Kind of messed up that pet dogs still exist, but whatever.

Decoherence does not generate actual wave function collapse. It only provides an explanation for the observation of wave function collapse, as the quantum nature of the system "leaks" into the environment. Reality Doesn’t Exist Until We Measure It, Quantum Experiment Confirms.
Mind = blown. FIONA MACDONALD. 1 JUN At the quantum level, reality does not exist if you are not looking at it," lead researcher and physicist Andrew Truscott. The statement "Art does not exist unless it is shared, it requires both artist and audience" suggests that art must to be shared for if it is not shared it has no worth.
