The topic is still debatable that which is better, Science or Art. I am against the motion that science sooths and arts broken you up. Science stands for reassurance do not suit. It seems bit imposing. Where as, the statement ‘the purpose of the art is to upset’ shows pessimistic thought of the supporter. How art of living can throw one into abyss? How a mellifluous music can upset one? And, how the knowledge of spirituality can lead a person to the dark? Even, this is art that exudes substances, spirituality and serenity. One can feel the coolness and solitude of the beauty of it.
Against the reassurance of science, I can give various examples. It is the scientific discovery which snatched the happy of Japanese in 1945. One Hydrogen bomb on Nagasaki and another on Hiroshima brought the dooms day in the history of the world. Till date, Japanese are not able to come out of that nightmare. People are physically handicapped from their childhood due to the long lasting effect of that nuclear power. But, in the present time Japanese are popular for their patriotism and nationalism, they are still able to save their art and culture.
I am not going to criticize one but the war between United States of America and Iraq is the result science and technologies. Scientific researches and discoveries in developed countries want more resources. And in order to get recourses they attack on developing nations. They are looting oil from Iraq. Every day they perform testing of nuclear energy and have objection if other countries like India, Pakistan, Iran and Israel do the same. These wars and polarization of the world is only the result of science.
Art History: The World Beyond West Aesthetics is a branch of philosophy that is influenced by the concepts of value and beauty as they connect to the arts. Philosophers throughout time, such as Plato, have presented solid ideas about what artists should create and what people should like. In the world of today people have become more liberal on the philosophy of art resulting in the vast array of ...
Apart from it, science has its own advantages, it give one the new amplitude of cerebration process. If atomic energy causes destruction on the other hand it is source of energy that is widely used for the growth of human being. But the statement that art makes one upset does not seem of much value. Art is that key thing which made the human culture civilized. In ancient books like Vedas, Geeta and many more, it is mentioned that infinite energy can be generated by yoga and other way of meditation. This is not just a belief, Indian scientists are working on those books, and they are trying to unravel enigmas hidden in manuscripts. Even they are successful to some extent. In Ramayana and Mahabharata immense energy of God is discussed, Brahmastra are discussed they are synonymous of Nuclear energies and missile. The need is to find the way how we can get those powers again.
In conclusion, I would say Art is the weapon which shows us the era of renaissance and revival. It really reassures us. But on the other hand, science is not just Yin; it has its own greatness. Both are complementary for each other. If art is light the science can be tower. Both together can make a beacon. The light is inspiration.
