Confini sfumati. I problemi dell'arte, le soluzioni della percezione

“Un giorno, a una esposizione di arte concettuale al big apple Cultural middle, vidi un’opera costituita da un normale tavolo su cui erano posati alcuni libri. I libri erano di filosofi come Wittgenstein e Carnap, Ayer e Reichenbach, Tarski e Russell.
Si sarebbe potuto trattare del tavolo del mio studio, visto che period sufficientemente anonimo da poter essere ridotto a una semplice superficie da lavoro e i libri posati sopra erano dello stesso tipo di quelli che consultavo spesso in step with il mio lavoro”. Questo è il rompicapo – e insieme il paradosso – che attraversa l’arte contemporanea così come l’ontologia dell’arte: il tavolo con sopra i libri al manhattan Cultural heart è considerato un’opera d’arte, mentre lo stesso oggetto, un tavolo con sopra libri di filosofia, nel mio appartamento sulla 119vesima strada, a brand new York, è e rimane un semplice tavolo. Com’è potuto accadere che l. a. distinzione, classica, tra opere d’arte e oggetti comuni sia stata abbandonata? In un mondo in cui l. a. bellezza è merce sempre più rara, le opere d’arte paiono essere ovunque.
Ma sarà davvero così?

Perhaps there is evidence that the neural correlate of phenomenal consciousness is exactly the same as the neural correlate of accessconsciousness? The idea that this is a conceptual difference without a real difference would make sense both of much of what Crick and Koch say and of much of the empirical work on consciousness. But paradoxically, the idea that the neural correlates of the two concepts of consciousness coincide is one which Crick and Koch themselves actually give us reason to reject.

It is true, for example, that when I am driving my car 'on automatic pilot' I am not paying much attention to the details of the road and the traffic. But it is simply not true that I am totally unconscious of these phenomena. If I were, there would be a car crash. We need therefore to make a distinction between the center of my attention, the focus of my consciousness on the one hand, and the periphery on the other.... [Italics added]. 1 Note that Searle claims that if I became unconscious of the road while driving, the car would crash.

1 This tendency was expressed in, for example, the development of planning algorithms that treated real-world action as merely a way of implementing solutions arrived at by pure cognition (more recent work, by contrast, allows such actions to play important computational and problem-solving roles2). It also surfaced in David MarrV depiction of the task of vision as the construction of a detailed threedimensional image of the visual scene. For possession of such a rich inner model effectively allows the system to 'throw away' the world 1 Notable exceptions to this trend include work such as J.
