A Philosophy of Aesthetics Thought Experiment

January 30, 2009

What’s more beautiful: a mistake or something done on purpose? Or is there a necessary difference? An accident in the paint store that comes out as the Mona Lisa, or the Mona Lisa itself? If there’s no objective difference, which is better? Come up with some more examples then decide for yourself.

    -> Something done on purpose involves your conscious mind.
    -> Something that happens as an accident is a fluke. There is no creativity. Just plain aesthetic.
    -> Something done randomly involves your subconscious mind. It brings out your inner feelings.
