By Paisley Livingston
Livingston argues that neither the inspirationist nor rationalistic conceptions can seize the mixing of planned and intentional, spontaneous and accidental tactics within the construction of paintings. Texts, works, and inventive buildings and performances can't be competently individuated within the absence of a popularity of the correct makers intentions. the excellence among entire and incomplete works gets an action-theoretic research that makes attainable an elucidation of numerous various senses of "fragment" in serious discourse. Livingston develops an account of authorship, contending that the popularity of intentions is in reality the most important to our knowing of numerous types of collective art-making. An artist's momentary intentions and long term plans and rules have interaction in advanced methods within the emergence of an inventive oeuvre, and our uptake of such attitudes makes a major distinction to our appreciation of the relatives among goods belonging to a unmarried life-work.

Los poetas y los artistas, en una curiosa sustitución, ya sólo se interesan por su doble, el cuerpo, soma, que antaño significaba el cuerpo «inanimado», sin vida, el cadáver. Los filósofos parecen pensar que se trata de un tema que ya es historia, apenas útil para las antologías.
Sprechen und Denken - ein schwieriges Verhältnis. Wie formt die Sprache unser Denken, und used to be gewinnen und used to be verlieren wir dabei? Nicht alles Denken ist sprachliches Denken. Bilder und Klänge, Geräusche und Gefühle, Gesichter und Gebärden und vieles andere mehr: all dies taucht in unseren Vorstellungen auf und mischt sich in unser Denken ein.
