Traditional problems in philosophy can be solved if language is rid of its obscurities and confusion. And therefore I no longer think that an umbrella or a basket is, in all cases, a useful picture of Philosophy, because if the items of Philosophy are parts of a whole, then a pie chart is the least misleading picture, with a tree-chart appended to that if necessary. (Maybe a Venn diagram would also be useful, although I don't know that.) Remember that there are many ways to slice a pie, and many ways to conceive a thing, not just one.

George Dickie has taken the concept of the artworld to refer not to a body of theory but to a particular group of people—artists, curators, art critics, museum-goers—and has argued that, roughly speaking, something is art if it is the sort of thing that is designed to be presented to members of the artworld (Dickie 1984). These ideas exercised an important influence upon the Christian art of Germany, down to the period of Steinle and the Dusseldorf school.

News photos taken by reporters, microscopic photos taken by doctors, thermography made by physicists, mapping satellite pictures for geographical study, and computer enhanced pictures of planets taken by the probe "Voyager" and the Hubble telescope all fall into this category.
