I’m a good person, but this is a big problem for me. I never thought I could do anything with a piece of art. It’s hard to do that in life.
I agree with this. One of the things that makes art so amazing is that it allows us to create something outside of our everyday lives that is totally foreign to our everyday lives. It’s this ability to transcend and not be caught in the mundane and ordinary that is what makes art so amazing.
It’s true that art helps us to transcend the mundane and ordinary. But it’s also true that art can easily dull our awareness of how our everyday lives are a little bit like the mundane and ordinary. Sometimes it’s hard to see that you’re not really doing anything wrong, because you’re not that into it. But you can’t just tell people that, because they’d think that was an admission that you weren’t good at art.
I’m more of the “art shouldnt be like this, but in this way” type of guy, although of course, my love for art is very personal. But I also feel that art is good for us, and can help us understand ourselves and our society, as well as our world.
The general feeling someone might have about someone else is that they are a little “off”. We all have tendencies that we don’t like, or that we find unpleasant. We can see this behavior in others and we can even detect it in ourselves. We’re all prone to this in a way that we can’t tell why. It’s also what makes us feel good and bad at the same time.
So when we see someone else doing something bad, we feel bad, maybe even angry. And when we see someone else doing something nice, we feel good, or at least better. We also like to think that this sense of morality is innate, but its not. Its learned. And it can be influenced by the people in our life.
In other words: we can both be inclined to do a thing that we dislike, but also be motivated to do the same thing. This is why there is the concept of “generalized other”. The generalized other in mead is the “other” that is our closest or most meaningful other. But we can also see it in others in a way that is also not easy to describe.
The other is a person who is the opposite of the mead, but doesn’t possess the same power or significance. For example, in my family we have one of these two. One is my dad, the other is my mom. One is the person I love, the other is a person I hate. It’s not a person I would identify with, but it’s still a person in that it has a very clear and distinct identity.
We don’t think of the generalized other as being negative, but rather as a person who has a deep, negative effect on us. They are the most important other we have in our lives, but they also have a negative effect on us that we can’t see. The other is also a person that we can talk to, but we can only tell that other through our actions. We do have an other, but that other is hidden.
Although it might not seem like it, we are generally aware of the generalized other, but we don’t know it and we don’t know what its like to be the one.
