FAILED - ART AND FAILED - ART THEORY 33 Suppose that one doesn’t find this persuasive. What then might be the substantial difference between the work in the Putative Non-Art Case and a visually indistinguishable natural object likewise regarded? , the work in the Putative Non-Art Case is the product of an attempt and therefore intentiondependent, but the visually indistinguishable natural object clearly cannot be intention-dependent. Notice, however, that intentions, while present in the Putative Non-Art Case, nevertheless contribute nothing substantive.

Notice, however, that intentions, while present in the Putative Non-Art Case, nevertheless contribute nothing substantive. Intentions appear to be at best causally trivial, absent entirely from the work’s substantive causal history. The Putative Non-Art Case is a thing for which the presence of intentions plays no more substantive a role than does the absence of intentions for the similarly regarded and visually indistinguishable natural object. That something is trivially the product of an art-attempt shouldn’t be sufficient for that thing being art.

That is, w is regarded in way r1 but not in manner É as the result of the r1-attempt, and so w is not art but failed-art. Putative Non-Art Case: w is the product of an r1-attempt, but w is regarded in way r1 only by pure accident. That is, neither is w regarded in way r1 in manner É, nor does w being so regarded have anything non-trivial to do with w being the product of the r1-attempt, and so w is neither art nor failed-art but merely non-art. Despite three of the above four cases putatively featuring non-art, if Levinson is correct, then all four of the above cases feature artworks.
