Aesthetics and particularism

Sean McKeever, Michael Ridge

pp. 264-285

On Tuesday, Edgar is hosting an opening at his gallery. Art Maison, for his friend, the up and coming painter Andrew. Knowing that this is an important opportunity for Andrew, Edgar has assured him that he will do his best to bring off the event successfully. Edgar also knows that proper lighting is critical for art to look its best, and several bulbs at the gallery have recently gone dead and need to be replaced. But a trip to the store is inconvenient, and, for no better reason than that, he neglects to replace them. As a consequence, at the opening Andrew’s paintings are less impressive than they otherwise would be.
