I was more after views on whether there is such a thing asa method for working in, considering the merits of, accepting or rejecting a piece of art because ... well, what? Ditto with Philosophy and Religion.

Re Art, I suggest that an art work, a painting or a poem, are pieces of objective reality. I.E., they are capable of being observed and made an’object’ by anyone. There are methods of learning the practices of art creation. There are all kind of books on how to make art in Arts and Crafts stores and public libraries as well. These can be looked up by anyone interested so they are also objective.

Science, at least for us old folks, is part of philosophy as the search for wisdom. The methods are similar based on subject matter being studied. The religious method is whatever they do in divinity schools. I bet they still have them in England. You could consider taking a class!

We have all been dancing for many years, so we all know the names of the steps and the way they are constructed - a beginner could not possibly join in. It is like all motor skills, they must be practised until internalised.

Well then, you and your compadres have internalized the methods taught when you were beginners. So you simply have to go back to your beginnings in this art and remember the method.

Tapdancing is not objective; it does not have an existence away from people and feet.

People and feet are quite capable of objectivation, I.e., made into objects. Your video is an objective image of your actual, very real dancing. People and feet, in theory anyways, are as capable of being considered objects as stars and planets.

There are various methods of teaching it, but no objective method. It is an Art form. Is there an objective method for any Art form, or Philosophy, or Religion?

Susan, you are sounding like Socrates here, asking whether “Can virtue be taught”. My answer is No, but it can be guided by method. I can only suggest that if people were interested in objectifying the methods of Art and Religion, they could certainly do so. I think that why it may not be done in the fashion of science is because people don’t care or feel the need to do so. But my point is that it certainly could be done, and it may look something similar to a general scientific method.

Finally, I suggest that there are issues of freedom, integrity, ego, power, wealth in all human activities. There is no escape from our human nature. IMO, of course.
