In doing so, she develops a cultured concept that reconciles the obvious dichotomies which stem from the strain among the determinacy of verbal exchange and the indeterminacy of creativity. Dichotomies akin to universality and subjectivity, objectivity and autonomy, cognitivism and non-cognitivism, and fact and wonder are printed as complementary gains of a classy judgment.
