Something I’ve been thinking about lately:
If presented with a Michelangelo or a symphony by Mozart or a passage from In Search of Lost Time, would an educated person and an uneducated person be equally drawn to it? Or, lacking the language by which to communicate about a great work of art, would the uneducated person brush it off as confusing, dull, uninteresting? Is there any kind of universal response to art? Or is it all just about education?
