" Two claims are discussed. One is that works of art are a product of nature, no less than rocks and flowers. The other is that nature itself is an artifact, constructed by scientists and artisans, throughout centuries, from a partly yielding, partly resisting material of unknown properties. Since both claims are supported by convincing evidence, the world appears much more slippery than commonly assumed by rationalists. Intellectual generalizations around ‘art,’ ‘nature’ or ‘science’ are simplifying devices that can help us order the abundance that surrounds us. They should be understood as such—opportunistic tools, not final statements on the objective reality of the world."
