The Big Questions

The website has recently been founded to allow academic debate on any of the big questions in the world from 'Does God exist?' to the nature of happiness and questions about current affairs.

Either read and upload articles through the main site: or go to 'Debate It' and have a quick discussion.

SOUNDINGS: An Interdisciplinary Journal -- CFP: The Arts of Democracy

Jun 1 2009

It is often assumed that the arts, and particularly the fine arts, create and sustain the kinds of social distinctions that are antithetical to true democracy. This is the claim advanced by Pierre Bordiue's influential Distinction where he argues that what appear to be innocent differences in aesthetic tastes are, in fact, the markers of class identity that enforce social hierarchy. However, there is a countervaling tradition, represented most famously by John Dewey, that insists that the arts are necessary to the health and longevity of democratic culture, and many contemporary artists and theorists are devoted to developing an aesthetic that participates in the development of democratic ideals.
