Art is sympathetic representation; the effort not only to reveal an object to us, but to unite us with it. Although every work of art is an expression, not every expression is a work of art. We expect art to accomplish three great results: reconciliation, revelation, and sympathy. Music gives entrance into supernatural feeling. Dewitt H. Parker (1885?1949) was a professor of philosophy at the University of Michigan. Appointed department chair in 1929, Parker published works on metaphysics, aesthetics, and ethics.
