The Appreciation Game. A Monist Ontology of Works of Art


A pluralist ontology states that works of art can belong to distinct ontological categories whereas a monist ontology states that all works of art belong to one ontological category. A monist ontology would be preferable since it paves the way for a unified account of art. Yet, monist conceptions find it hard to deal with cultural practices of art appreciation. In the first part of the paper I will discuss two quite popular monist strategies. According to the one strategy, all works of art are types; according to the other, all works of art are actions. I will argue that both these strategies fail to deal with the relevant cultural practices. In the second part of the paper, I will propose a new monist ontology of art according to which all works of art are norms governing appreciation. I will argue that this account can succeed in dealing with the relevant cultural practices.
