The hermeneutic problem– can we ever really understand each other’s experiences– became the foundation for art historian Wilhelm Freidrich Hegel’s Absolute Idea. By believing that art was continually working toward a perfect picture of humanity, he inferred that through artwork we can truly see one another’s minds and hearts. The creation of art isn’t easy–but then again, it is also a difficult task to know oneself so fully as to make a portrait of the human mind.
