This week's Comment looks again at the work of Calvin Seerveld. Gideon Strauss looks at Seerveld's cultural guidelines for artists. Gideon writes:
I am convinced that these guidelines are not only helpful to artists, but that they can be transposed to almost every sphere of human action. What I am going to try and do in this article is to generalize the guidelines, to show how they can provide us with hints for engaging culture beyond the realm of the arts.
