Abstract

When it comes to discussing art and complex cultural issues, does the emphasis on provocation merely reduce issues into straightforward oppositions, at the cost of developed argument, consistency and any nuanced engagement? A response to Camille Paglia's "how capitalism can save art?"

Impact and interest:

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
