Being “carried away” by both the cloud and the birdsong) enacts a change in your emotional state. 2 The Aesthetics of Embodied Life 35 Lockwood (Gene Kelly) kisses Kathy Selden (Debbie Reynolds) goodnight on her doorstep and turns around into the rain with a big smile on his face. He shoos away the idling car in front of her apartment and begins to stroll merrily down the street, singing “doo dloo doo doo doo/doo dloo doo doo doo/doo dloo doo doo doo”. The rhythm of this merry doo-dloo-doo-ing fairly skips along as he glides and saunters down the street.

Dewey does much the same: The problem is that of effecting the union of ideas and knowledge with the non-rational factors [emotions and habits] in the human make-up. Art is the name given to all the agencies by which this union is effected.

Like Friedrich Nietzsche, Dewey was a champion of the genetic method.
