Read in October, 2011
Read this for my Composition class. Its a great read when first read since his main ideas stand out, have clarity, and are verified (to some degree), however re-reading it introduces the more "radical" ideas.
In his essay he raises the idea of "mysticification." Which is great and all but he chooses to not define it. I had to keep going back trying to find a definition in context however failed. He seems to switch it around a lot.
My Composition professor raised a good point- Berger is so against mytification but Is he mystifying art in the essay? He seems to be talking in circles, as some of his ideas lack clarity.
It is a good read however a torture to analyze. I think it wasn't even meant to be analyzed.
Nevertheless he raises interesting points that must be read.
