I am trying to deny Joseph Margolis' argument that pieces of art are not 'universals'. Particularly, I want to say that types (in the tokens-of-a-type sense) are essentially the same thing as universals. He says that art, unlike universals, can be created or destroyed. I want to argue that art, instead of being created, is discovered. Which leads us to the title of this question.
Particularly, why do we say that art is created rather than discovered? And what would be the consequences if we were to take that artists 'discover' rather than 'create'?
