Yes because Robert Malcolm never posts anything in jest in these here forums.

/rollseyes

It's bad enough we have to come across your corny one sentence posts Robert, but now we have to get a self-aggrandizing lecture from you about when it is appropriate to inject comedy? Take that stick out of your ass.

Here is an interesting video that morphs female portraits from the past 500 years. This should spark some new debate!
There are a few surprises in viewing the juxtaposition of the various poses. It would be more interesting if it was strictly chronological, but then it would be much harder to get faces in similar poses to make the morphing less jarring.

Anybody up to distinguishing metaphysical value-judgments from sense of life? What's the difference?

According to what Rand wrote -

http://www.aynrandlexicon.com/lexicon/senseoflife.html

http://www.aynrandlexicon.com/lexicon/metaphysicalvaluejudgment.html

A metaphysical value-judgment is about what one considers IMPORTANT...

A sense of life is about how one emotionally feels about one's relationship to the world about... the metaphysical value-judgments form the sense of life...

Metaphysical value judgments are what makes up a sense of life. Evereyone has a sense of life, only a few explicitly identify their metaphysical value judgments.

One's sense of life is constant, right? Metaphysical value-judgments may find expression in particular art...where else?

Art is where metaphysical value-judgments are expressed, yes - because art is about showing what the artist considers of primary IMPORTANCE, and there has to be a conscious effort in this to the extent of picking and choosing what to put in and what to leave out [the essence of what is of importance]...

Even if just to the degree of compositioning, there is decision of where to place this or that, how large or small, how to balance against other inclusions, etc.....

As to where else, well - that is where the view of aesthetics, the overall expression of what is or is not of importance to the individual gets expressed - thru how the person lives, conducts self, associates with others - in the manner of showing, thru the self, the sense of life of that person...
