The Unity of the Kind "Artwork"

Abstract : It is not easy to identify in a precise way the role that works of art play in our cognitive life. Yet, works of art, like all artifacts, are essentially linked to our cognitive life. A study of the relationships between art and cognition is thus a necessary step towards understanding artistic phenomena and artifacts. A variety of possible outcomes can emerge out of the study of this interaction. The paper defends the conversational-prompt theory of artworks as one such outcomes.
