The Arts and the Definition of the Human: Toward a Philosophical Anthropology by Joseph Margolis
English | Sep 10, 2008 | ISBN: 0804759545 | 200 Pages | PDF | 5 MB

The Arts and the Definition of the Human introduces a novel theory that our selves—our thoughts, perceptions, creativity, and other qualities that make us human—are determined by our place in history, and more particularly by our culture and language. Margolis rejects the idea that any concepts or truths remain fixed and objective through the flow of history and reveals that this theory of the human being (or "philosophical anthropology") as culturally determined and changing is necessary to make sense of art.

These abilities include learning, creativity, consciousness, and emotion.
