Detailed study of the various art forms, and their different modes of expression. Leo Tolstoy, on the other hand, claims that what makes something art or not is how it is experienced by its audience, not by the intention of its creator. In other words, from the conventional art world’s perspective, appropriating mass-produced goods is a legitimate artistic gesture insofar as the goods are not appropriated and serially exhibited en masse.

Whenever a critical appraisal of objects in the realm of art, culture and nature is done, words like aesthetics and esthetics come into play. We do not fuse together with the world as a whole in a blinding flash, but rest wherever we stand, remaining content with what lies before us. To the contrary he contends that art has been freed of, what he calls, its “philosophical disenfranchisement” and so now continues independently from any demand for self-determination.
