Hour 8. Authenticity.


And now for something completely different.


We have established that we live in the age where our contemplation of art can also involve the contemplation of contemplation itself, i want to introduce you to a couple ideas. One of my favorites is the idea of the authenticity vs the author. This is one of those ideas that made me go “whoa” when I first learned of it. So, I’m not even going to do any explaining. I’m just going to give you some links. I want you to use them to construct your understanding of the concept in your notes.


Here we go.
