Dictionary of the History of Ideas

Dictionary of the History of Ideas: "This ancient conception of art is not foreign to us,
but it appears today under other names: craft, skill,
or technique. The Greek name for art was technē, and
as a matter of fact our term “technique” suits the
ancient idea of art better than our term “art,” which
is now used as an abbreviation for fine arts."

What modern art has lost- what modern arts administrators might want to explain to the public.
