    factors, distance or height, and the acceleration. Because the object was dropped to the ground, the acceleration should be the gravity acceleration, which is 9.8m/s². All free-falling objects were accelerating downwards at a rate of 9.8 m/s², whatever the mass and surface area was.

    More simply put, works of art have a meaning. Danto believes this theory solves the “Problem of Indiscernible Counterparts.” Warhol’s boxes have a meaning to them that ordinary boxes do not have. The same can be applied to the Leaning Tower of Pisa lookalike and the copy of Macbeth typed by monkeys. They are merely a pile of rocks and a sequence of random letters. Danto goes on to state that a definition of art must include more than simply the requirement of being representational, because not…
