‘Can Evolution Account for Art?’
Do artists have more problems than non-artists, or do they just whine about them more intriguingly?
Everybody has problems, but artists at least have the skills to make theirs interesting.
Thus, it’s more edifying to ponder Beethoven grappling heroically with his encroaching deafness than to listen to your Aunt Linda loudly kvetch about how everybody mumbles these days.
