Even if few philosophers agree approximately what it truly is for whatever to be artwork, such a lot, if now not all, agree on something: artwork has to be in a few feel goal based. Art and Art-Attempts is set what follows from taking goal dependence heavily as a sizeable precious situation for something's being paintings. Christy magazine Uidhir argues that from the belief that artwork has to be the manufactured from intentional motion, in addition to easy action-theoretic account of makes an attempt (goal-oriented intention-directed activity), follows a bunch of sweeping implications for philosophical enquiry into the character of artwork and its valuable relata reminiscent of authorship, artwork types, and artwork ontology: e.g.,
DT An informative contrast among artwork, non-art, and failed-art that any potential concept of paintings needs to capture.
DT a much more efficient minimum framework for authorship not just in a position to systematically addressing problems with collective authorship appropriation, and so forth. but in addition one in accordance with which artists simply are authors.
DT A coherent and structurally exact account of paintings kinds established upon the relation among artists, works of art, and the sortal houses thereof.
DT A unified and much much less metaphysically suspect ontology of artwork based on which if there are things like artistic endeavors, then artistic endeavors needs to be concrete things.
Ultimately, magazine Uidhir goals neither to suggest nor to shield any specific, special solution to the query "What is art?" as an alternative, he indicates the ways that taking intention-dependence heavily as a considerable invaluable situation for being artwork may be profoundly revelatory, and maybe even appreciably revisionary, as to the scope and bounds of what any specific, targeted resolution to one of these query may possibly viably be.

That is, w is regarded in way r1 but not in manner É as the result of the r1-attempt, and so w is not art but failed-art. Putative Non-Art Case: w is the product of an r1-attempt, but w is regarded in way r1 only by pure accident. That is, neither is w regarded in way r1 in manner É, nor does w being so regarded have anything non-trivial to do with w being the product of the r1-attempt, and so w is neither art nor failed-art but merely non-art. Despite three of the above four cases putatively featuring non-art, if Levinson is correct, then all four of the above cases feature artworks.

To illustrate this slightly better, suppose for sake of argument the following crude definition of what it is to be a chair: Something is a chair just in case that thing (i) is made for the purpose of being sat upon, and (ii) is able to be sat upon as the result of being so made. Notice that adding the extra condition (iii) [is an artifact] adds nothing of any substance to the above precisely because anything satisfying (i) and (ii), ipso facto satisfies (iii). Even though something is a chair only if that thing is an artifact, it doesn’t follow that being an artifact is itself in the minimal set of substantive necessary conditions taken jointly to be sufficient for being a chair; rather, being an artifact is merely entailed by (or coextensive with) some such substantive necessary condition in that minimal set (or that minimal set itself).

16 Let R be the set of all and only those ways in which works in the extension of “pre-existing artworks” are or were correctly regarded—R = {r1, r2, r3 . . }. 14 Note that on my account, if an art theory allows for people without the art concept to engage in art-attempts, then it must follow on that theory that those who do so and succeed produce art while those who do so but fail produce failed-art. 15 Of course, in order to be a substantively informative theory, the regard-chain must end with an artwork not defined in terms of previous regard.
