THE THEME

Ever since ‘art’ was separated from ‘science’, controversies and doubts have baffled human mind as to whether ‘art’ should at all be viewed as a separate sphere of study and practice, whether or not the two spheres share some common characteristics, whether science and art influence each other, and so on.
