Understanding the Creative Arts

-Basic issues of interpretation. How does a work mean anything? How does one determine meaning? How can a work have numerous meanings, often at the same time?

-Questions of value. How can such creative works be evaluated? How are critical vocabularies developed? How does a work come to be called a "classic"? How do new works and genres become accepted as art?
