    art vs arts?

    1. What is the difference between "write" and "write of"?
    2. What is the difference between "art" and "arts"? According to the bottom definition, "arts" seems to be a broader concept meaning non-science subjects. Is it true?

    mo3-43ex)The person who wrote of a building bringing gladness to the viewer reminds us of the importance of beauty in human life. Biologists account for the human desire for art in other terms. They explain that human beings have very large brains that demand stimulation. Curious, active, and inventive, we humans constantly explore, and in so doing invent things that appeal to our senses fine arts, fine food, fine scents, and fine music. Art has mostly been considered in terms of seeking beauty, but there are other reasons deeply rooted in the human experience that create needs for art. Fo
    Art and Arts are two words that are often confused as words that convey the same meaning. Actually they are two different words that convey different meanings. Art means, fine art such as painting, drawing and sculpture. Arts represent subjects such as commerce, economics, philosophy, history and other such non-science subjects. This is the main difference between the two words.

    That's arguable.

    It certainly is. Chalmers noted in his seminal book on the philosophy of science, What Is This Thing Called Science?, that there is no agreed upon definition of "science", nor is there any universally accepted scientific method. It's also arguable whether sociology and psychology are sciences as well, although it would be foolish to equate astrology with astronomy in terms of their "scienceness". So even though it's not a black-and-white issue, there are some usueful distinctions that can be (and should be) made.

    In any case, I should have made a less bold statement, by saying, 'I should note that (most) universities treat economics as a (social) science, not as an arts course.'
