<< Lynn does have a point.

There are useful differences between art and science. When we or our
students get confused as to which is which the possibility of producing
confused art or science increases.

How do we keep things clear and distinguishable?

Tell me more. What are the useful differences between art and science. What
is wrong with being confused as to which is which? I get confused all the
time. Particularly when I am not in a school. It seems to me that it is the
traditional divisions, the so-called disciplines of knowledge, that muck
things up. They are artificial and arbitrary and barely useful when we
function out of the academic setting. It is hard to keep things clear and
distinguishable because they are not.
