This identify is the results of a one-week workshop subsidized via the Swedish examine employer, FRN, at the interface among complexity and paintings. between others, it comprises discussions on even if "good" paintings is "complex" paintings, how artists see the time period "complex", and what poets try and show in notice approximately advanced habit in nature

Example text

Although our approach addressed certain issues of automated modeling, its main problem was that there appeared to be no way estimate from the symboHc equations of motion how much information processing was being performed by the system. To remedy this, in 1989 Karl Young and I introduced a method to reconstruct from observations the hidden computational mechanisms underlying unpredictable behavior [9]. We adapted several ideas from the earliest days of computers, in particular those introduced by Noam Chomsky, the MIT linguist [4].

Thus, according to Plato the way to gain knowledge is to directly encounter these "platonic" Forms. But since artworks are only imitations of physical objects, which are themselves only derivatives of the Forms, a work of art cannot provide us with any knowledge. As Plato described it in Book 10 of The Republic: "They [artworks] are at the third 22 John L. Casti remove" from reality. So, for Plato art was not a source of knowledge or even of reliable opinion about objects of the real world. Aristotle, although sharing Plato's view of art as presenting likenesses of things, argued that it is natural and beneficial for humans to learn by imitating and from carefully crafted imitations.
