In the ninteenth century, academics had attempted to discern what was good, or high art by codefying and defining the process and subject matter for the work. Others rebelled and took art in new directions entirely disregarding process or protocol and are generally regarded more highly now than the academics. Some criticize skeptics for similar things: attempting to codify and apply logic to all things.
Does the skeptical process conflict with artistic creation? Are there parallels between the Academie and the skeptical community’s approach to art?
