seriously, airwolf the false dichotomy between Science and The Arts. as if capital-S Science isn’t an art that requires creativity, perseverance, patience, and skilled observation. as if The Arts don’t require rigor, discipline, practice, and attention to detail. as if both aren’t cultural structures that stand on foundations of sexist, racist, capitalist hierarchy. as if they both can’t be used for purposes of enrichment and revolution. i am so airwolfing over this idea of presenting science and art as opposites, when they have so much more in common than people think.

Science is meant to research phenomena and reach fact-based conclusions. Arts are more like a social commentary that's open to interpretation. In other words, you're an idiot.

I feel fairly comfortable disregarding this idea.

Convince me otherwise.

Moot 17/03/10(Fri)22:23 No. 763175

I don't think that poster's statement could be interpreted as "art has no value" because he merely argued that art has more interpretive opportunities than science does. Yet, he also forgot that most modern science is also completely up to interpretation and debate, which is a key part of the scientific process. Do some research on a database on any given concept and you will find two articles sharing contrary perspectives.

Music used to be taught as science in medieval schools as part of their quadrivium, which students mastered after the trivium. But there was also less knowledge, and as academies grow each discipline goes to more specialization since there is so much more knowledge.

It was poorly thought out and should be disregarded anyways because we have precious time before we die and wasting it on parsing out garbage is a mistake.

Why do those stereotypes exist in the first place?

Surely they're not completely made up.

Every stereotype is based on something real. In most cases they are an amalgamation of traits belonging to the worst or best examples of people in a particular category. For each trait described by a stereotype, there should be at least one actual person who displays that trait--but never one person displaying all of them.

I like Jody Highroller, I like how he unapologetically buys into the whole bling and brand name bullshit, all his music is a stereotype of the rap game life, it's a big middle finger to the idea that rap is a black thing and white people have no place in it.

People only started getting salty about race after a black president took over America.

I have so many problems with this photo. At the higher levels, math is just as subjective as sociology. The guy who makes xkcd is obviously uneducated and autistic if he believes one field is any more or less subjective than another. Perhaps he was arguing that math is the most independent field since it informs the rest of the fields. But math is also dependent on language to communicate. So then literature would be the most "pure" area of study on this picture, right? Oh but wait your high school English teachers just wanted you to talk and were college dropouts and told you that books have any meaning you want them to. Yeah, that's right. It would totally conflict with this autistic, anti-humanities rhetoric he has going on. Because, clearly, this guy doesn't understand humanity and how interdependent all of these disciplines are.

Oops I forgot--math doesn't have anything to do with anything other than itself. Ah, I stand corrected. Yes, mathematics is the most pure. Sorry about that diatribe. Clearly the social conditioning that entry level sociology explains has nothing to do with mathematics or how people parse out their worlds so why study it right guys yuk yuk yuk yuk

a feeling of surprise mingled with admiration, caused by something beautiful, unexpected, unfamiliar, or inexplicable.

Bob Ross 17/05/17(Wed)12:12 No. 766209


You might argue that the "language" used to express the other disciplines is in fact Mathematics, as much as it can convey objectively.
Lets look at it like this though, XCKD makes a lot of ironic or otherwise sarcastic commentaries towards "nerd stereotypes", don't take it so hard.

Art requires the very basic math and has lose parameters (aka most things can be considered "art")

Science requires complex math to understand the world. (A always equals A)

Art is just some made up shit

Science is our entire civilizations mystery adventure being played out one persons commitment at across his entire life at a time and transends your petty concepts of things like sexism and racism which art specifically wastes time trying to "Understand" with some painting on a wall that will be interpreted differently by every person in that room and virtually none of them will see it as a brave fight against oppression as much as it is the black guy hauling a rock up a hill you actually drew.

...so now I don't consider them the same and you should probably struggle after college kid.

And if you think I'm wrong let me propose this

If you mix up a group of artists with scientists the artists will fail math and the scientists will become good artists because what is being taught by science is how to analyse make anything work, not just science.

TD;DR art doesn't cure cancer or put people on the moon.
