"The knower's perspective is essential in the pursuit of knowledge." To what extent do you agree?
  1. THE ARTS
    1. Imagination
      1. In art, one of the first things we are taught is to let our imagination guide us in the pursuit of creating art. We may all be given the same directions for a project and will all come up with something different because we all have unique imaginations and thoughts.
      2. The arts are based in 4 different perspectives, each gives a different meaning.
        1. -w/emphasis on artist
          1. -w/emphasis on artwork
            1. -w/emphasis on audience
              1. w/emphasis on context of society/natural world
                1. If the viewer doesn't understand the context that the art was created in, such as personal influences, then the viewer may have a weakened understanding of the piece compared to someone with knowledge of the background.
        2. Sense Perception
          1. RLS: My step-dad is colorblind so he cannot perceive pieces of art the same as I since he cannot differentiate certain colors
            1. Art is taken in through the senses, predominantly the eyes and the ears, so each person takes in the information differently. No two people will look at a piece of art and see it the exact same.
          2. THESIS:
            1. HISTORY
              1. Language & Reason
                1. Counterexample #1:
                  1. Knowledge is created from different perspectives.
