The juxtaposition of Bell’s supernatural realm of timeless beauty (or “significant form”) with the ugly tragedy of modern warfare that was about to be unleashed on the world, could not be more stark. Nor could such a transcendent conception of art be more disengaged from the meaning of our daily lives. Neither can we excuse Edward Bullough who, just 2 years earlier , advised us of the necessity of disengaging from life, if we hope to achieve an objective regard for an aesthetic object. Bullough’s “aesthetic outlook” requires “putting the phenomenon, so to speak, out of gear with our practical, actual self; by allowing it to stand outside the context of our personal needs and ends – in short, by looking at it ‘objectively,’ as it has often been called …” (, 298–99).

Here is an example from his Logic: The Theory of Inquiry: That which is “given” in the strict sense of the word “given,” is the total field or situation. The given in the sense of the singular, whether object or quality, is the special aspect, phase or constituent of the existentially present situation that is selected to locate and identify its problematic features with reference to the inquiry then and there to be executed. In the strict sense, it is taken rather than given. This fact decides the logical status of data.
