Re: Why Does Man Create?
I think man's desire to create can truly be traced back to his inclination to fashion the world around him in his image, or in accordance with his expressions. Humans are vain creatures, and we like to see ourselves in the world. When we create a sculpture we have imparted part of ourselves onto concrete solid material. When we father or mother a child we see another being with traits and genes from us. It is only natural for us to seek to adapt the world around us in our image and to our liking.
