    You speak of art as though it's some sort of alien force. Surely, art must mirror human experience somehow?

    The ideas of teachers as authority and learning/knowledge as repetition have been severely criticized for half a century now, at least since the positivism of 1960s didactics didn't turn out to be...

    It's not like science, I agree, but e.g. Mulholland Drive provided me with a lot stronger emotional punch once I understood it (or thought I did) than before I did so. I think of artworks like other...

    Yeah, I mean, I have googled it, I have read several reviews and whatnot, and I know what the plot is, but I'm afraid that doesn't really help in solving what it all means. :( Thanks anyway.

    My point was not that art should enable suffering. In many cases I think people enjoy art of any kind because it acknowledges our experience (we recognize our lives in it) and then turn it into a...
