|Art: according to the traditional conception, art is a social sphere that is not directly focused on the maintenance of life functions. For this reason it opens up a certain freedom and possibility of knowledge. In the modern age, the idea of the evading of art has evolved in the face of a widespread through-organization of more and more areas of life.
