Chapter Summary

This chapter amplifies and adds to the remarks, repeating where necessary in the amplification and addition, as it looks at the individual and interconnected relevance of identity, objects, subjects, and language to the analytical definition of the project of Essentialist Abstraction. An Essentialist investigation of the limits of Abstraction includes consideration of the following things that pertain to the essential elements of artistic complexes: The relation of conceptual and perceptual awareness in the apprehension of the identity of an ideational object, and the relation of these kinds of awareness to one another and to an ideational object that they may be responsible in part for effecting. Certain limits of Abstraction may be revealed through identifying artworks with ideational objects that, in being indexed to comprehending specifications that refer to them, utilize essential elements of artistic complexes to effect that identification.

Keywords: artistic complexes; Essentialist Abstraction; Essentialist investigation
