The Nature of Art

The book titled “The Elephant in the Brain” has been a rather fascinating read, in which it has tried to provide a very honest and incisive perspective of humanity. The books objective is to address the ‘elephant in the room’, in other words what is unspeakable in society with regards to the many facets comprising the human condition. In this post I’ll be exploring the ideas brought forth in Chapter 11 of the book, which explores the nature of art.

The seemingly dry, single-minded concentration required for reading was the last thing I would want to do. I would ask myself – why would I bury myself like a hermit in a book?
