Two Excellent Posts on the Purposes of Art

Anthropologist and cultural theorist Robert Philen has two very interesting recent posts on his blog, essays on the roles and functions of art. The first piece, "The Purposes of Art", addresses the question in historical terms, while the second, "Troy and the Purposes of Art", examines the ways in which the recent historical-mythological epic film Troy more specifically exemplifies some of the functions art can perform.

Both are highly intelligent, well thought out pieces. I strongly recommend them.
