Art as Therapy: Alain de Botton on the 7 Psychological Functions of Art ~ Brain Pickings

Art as Therapy: Alain de Botton on the 7 Psychological Functions of Art ~ Brain Pickings | Free will | Scoop.it

by Maria Popova

 

"The question of what art is has occupied humanity since the dawn of recorded history. For Tolstoy, the purpose of art was to provide a bridge of empathy between us and others, and for Anaïs Nin, a way to exorcise our emotional excess. But the highest achievement of art might be something that reconciles the two: a channel of empathy into our own psychology that lets us both exorcise and better understand our emotions — in other words, a form of therapy.

 

"In Art as Therapy (public library), philosopherAlain de Botton — who has previously examined such diverse and provocative subjects as why work doesn’t work, what education and the arts can learn from religion, and how to think more about sex — teams up with art historian John Armstrong to examine art’s most intimate purpose: its ability to mediate our psychological shortcomings and assuage our anxieties about imperfection. Their basic proposition is that, far more than mere aesthetic indulgence, art is a tool — a tool that serves a rather complex yet straightforwardly important purpose in our existence:

 

'Like other tools, art has the power to extend our capacities beyond those that nature has originally endowed us with. Art compensates us for certain inborn weaknesses, in this case of the mind rather than the body, weaknesses that we can refer to as psychological frailties.'

 

"De Botton and Armstrong go on to outline the seven core psychological functions of art:"

Em apenas alguns semanas o Brasil aprovar o "Marco Civil da Internet no Brasil" que nos garantirá uma Internet livre, aberta e horizontal. Assine agora e envie para todos!



Por que isto é importante

A aprovação do projeto de lei conhecido como "Marco Civil da Internet no Brasil" ainda esse ano é crucial para garantir uma Internet livre, aberta e horizontal. O projeto começou com uma mobilização social pela internet em 2008 contra o projeto de lei de crimes pela Internet e se transformou em uma verdadeira Constituição da Internet no Brasil, com garantias de direitos fundamentais expressas para quem usa a Internet, como privacidade, neutralidade de rede e liberdade de expressão.

E como não se trata de um problema apenas nacional, caso o Congresso Nacional aprove o texto, a assinatura da lei pela Presidenta Dilma colocará o Brasil na vanguarda da liberdade em todo o mundo.

Bruna Steiner's insight:

Quando você carrega dentro de si uma revolução

cada momento  traz um novo mundo

uma nova vida

Cada momento se torna um novo nascimento

A vida é insegura

O que significa que a vida é LIVRE

Se houvesse segurança,

haveria escravidão;

Se tudo estivesse garantido não haveria liverdade

Olhe a volta

Tudo o que você fez não é o fim

Abra-se novamente, deixe que a jornada comece

NOVAMENTE

Traga novas coisas

as vezes, excêntricas.

quase loucas.

 

OSHO.

Bruna Steiner's insight:

"See no reason why his definition of free will - 'the sustaining of a thought because i choose to when i might have other thoughts need be the definition of an illusion. 
At any rate, i will assume for the present - until next year - that is NO ILLUSION. 
My first act of FREE WILL, not only act with it, but believe as well; believe in OUR individual reality and CREATIVE POWER.'
