What is the nature of the creative arts? What is their common purpose? These are questions that have puzzled thinkers and livened up dinner conversations for centuries. Certainly, in the course of history, artistic works have been made to serve countless ends. But do these tell us anything about what artistic creation, an activity that sets humans apart from all other animals, really is? In this provocative book, J.F. Martel draws on examples ranging from prehistoric cave art to modern pop music to argue that true art grants access to the hidden dimensions of the real. Art is more than ornament or entertainment--it is a way. And the way of art may be an escape from the endless aesthetic spectacle in which the State and Market seek to ensnare us all, to the detriment of our civilization, our planet, and our soul.
