Although in part this trend has been continued to these days, the exact role of the senses in the appreciation of beauty rests one of the major terrains of disputes in the field. Classes in logic and decision theory may contribute greatly to the capacity to analyze data and select plans of action. Kant criticized the traditional arguments for the existence of God.

Written philosophy developed in several places in the world independently. May the blessings of Swami Krishnananda be with us always. How best to define the term “art” is a subject of much contention; many books and journal articles have been published arguing over even the basics of what we mean by the term “art.” [13] Theodor Adorno claimed in 1969: “It is self-evident that nothing concerning art is self-evident any more.” [14] Artists, philosophers, anthropologists, psychologists and programmers all use the notion of art in their respective fields, and give it operational definitions that are not very similar to each other.
