LI ZEHOU, FROM FOUR ESSAYS ON ART: TOWARD A GLOBAL VIEW

Assigned: Zehou, Li. From Four Essays on Art: Toward a Global View (1748-60 in Leitch, Vincent B. and William E. Cain, eds. The Norton Anthology of Theory and Criticism. 2nd ed. New York: Norton, 2010. ISBN 978-0-393-93292-8.)

From Four Essays on Art: Toward a Global View

1. On 1748-50 of Four Essays on Aesthetics: Toward a Global View, Li Zehou concedes that "there is still no common agreement about what art is and which works constitute art" (1748 lower middle). How does he begin to reframe and address the issue? In responding, try to incorporate key Zehou concepts such as "sedimentation," "form," and "aesthetic psychological construction" as you understand them.

2. On 1751-52 of Four Essays on Aesthetics: Toward a Global View, Li Zehou continues his engagement with the definition of artworks. First, how does he discuss the relationship between the material dimension of art and the subjective experience of the perceiver? Second, trace Zehou's logic in making the assertion towards the end of these pages that "there is no use in seeking an eternal and unchangeable definition of art" (1752 top). What leads him towards this conclusion?

3. On 1754-56 of Four Essays on Aesthetics: Toward a Global View, Li Zehou early on asks "Which came first, art or the sense of beauty?" (1754 middle) How does he answer this question, and what reasoning does he offer for it? Furthermore, what is apparently meant by "primitive sedimentation," and why is it important to Zehou's understanding of the development of aesthetic experience?
