A philosopher makes the case for thinking of works of art as tools for investigating ourselves
In his new book,Strange Tools: Art and Human Nature, the philosopher and cognitive scientist Alva Noe raises a number of profound questions: What is art? Why do we value art as we do? What does art reveal about our nature? Drawing on philosophy, art history, and cognitive science, and making provocative use of examples from all three of these fields, Noe offers new answers to such questions. He also shows why recent efforts to frame questions about art in terms of neuroscience and evolutionary biology alone have been and will continue to be unsuccessful.
