长篇阅读

extraordinary creative activity has been characterized as revolutionary, flying in the face of what is established and producing not what is acceptable but what will become accepted. According to this formulation, highly creative activity transcends the limits of an existing form and establishes a new principle of organization. However, the idea that extraordinary creativity transcends established limits is misleading when it is applied to the arts, even though it may be valid for the sciences. Difference between highly creative art and highly creative science arise in part from a difference in their goals. For the sciences, a new theory is the goal and end result of the creative act. Innovative science produces new propositions in terms of which diverse phenomena can be related to one another in more coherent ways. Such phenomena as a brilliant diamond or a nesting bird are relegated to the role of data, serving as the means for formulating or testing a new theory. The goal of highly creative art is very different: the phenomenon itself becomes the direct product of the creative act. Shakespeare's Hamlet is not a tract about the behavior of indecisive princes or the uses of political power; nor is Picasso's painting Guernica primarily a propositional statement about the Spanish Civil War or the evils of fascism. What highly creative artistic activity produces is not a new generalization that transcends established limits, but rather an aesthetic particular. Aesthetic particulars produced by the highly creative artist extend or exploit, in an innovative way, the limits of an existing form, rather than transcend that form.

This is not to deny that a highly creative artist sometimes establishes a new principle of organization in the history of an artistic field; the composer Monteverdi, who created music of the highest aesthetic value, comes to mind. More generally, however, whether or not a composition establishes a new principle in the history of music has little bearing on its aesthetic worth. Because they embody a new principle of organization, some musical works, such as the operas of the Florentine Camerata, are of signal historical importance, but few listeners or musicologists would include these among the great works of music. On the other hand, Mozart's The Marriage of Figaro is surely among the masterpieces of music even though its modest innovations are confined to extending existing means. It has been said of Beethoven that he toppled the rules and freed music from the stifling confines of convention. But a close study of his compositions reveals that Beethoven overturned no fundamental rules. Rather, he was an incomparable strategist who exploited limits the rules, forms, and conventions that he inherited from predecessors such as Haydn and Mozart, Handel and Bach in strikingly original ways.

1. The author regards the idea that all highly creative artistic activity transcends limits with

A. deep skepticism

B. strong indignation

C. marked indifference

D. moderate amusement

E. sharp derision

答案:A

解析:

A.深表怀疑【正确选项,作者不认为科学和艺术是一回事并且举例说明】

B.十分不满,义愤填膺【反,但带有作者个人情绪,本文中作者并未抨击,只是持反对意见】

C.明显的无所谓【显然是一种中立的态度】

D.适度的兴趣(即有点兴趣)【正向评价,不选】

E. 尖锐的嘲笑【与B选项同理,作者只是不同意,但并没有嘲笑】

2. The author implies that an innovative scientific contribution is one that

A. is cited with high frequency in the publications of other scientists

B. is accepted immediately by the scientific com- munity

C. does not relegate particulars to the role of data

D. presents the discovery of a new scientific fact

E. introduces a new valid generalization

答案:E

解析:

a. Innovative science produces new propositions in terms of which diverse phenomena can be related to one another in more coherent ways. Such phenomena as a brilliant diamond or a nesting bird are relegated to the role of data, serving as the means for formulating or testing a new theory.

这个是关于science的说明,大致想表明的就是innovative science produce new propositions 但是跟D选项的discover new scientific fact意思上还是有点差距的。因为文中的propositions主要是关于各种现象之间的关联性。并没说发现一个新的事实之类的。

b. What highly creative artistic activity produces is not a new generalization that transcends established limits, but rather an aesthetic particular.

这个就说的更加明显了,既然强调了艺术和科学的区别,然后说艺术并不是produce a new generalization,那么可以推断出就是科学produce a new generalization了。

3. The passage supplies information for answering which of the following questions?

A. Has unusual creative activity been characterized as revolutionary?

B. Did Beethoven work within a musical tradition that also included Handel and Bach?

C. Who besides Monteverdi wrote music that the author would consider to embody new principles of organization and to be of high aesthetic value?

答案:A B

解析:A. 定位第一句话

B. 定位最后一句话,「贝多芬实际是一位无人匹及的策略家,他以非凡的原创方式,把他从海顿、莫扎特和巴赫这样的前辈们那里继承来的规则、模式和约定发挥到了极致。」

C. 选项是说同时 embody new principle 和 have high aesthetic value 的人有哪些。而整个最后一段,都在将讲「有创新和高价值不一定相关」(has little bearing) ,先是举Florentine Camerata 说创新不一定意味着 masterpiece ,然后说莫扎特《费加罗的婚礼》虽然没什么创新,仍被认为很杰出。最后讲贝多芬的意思是,大家觉得贝多芬很成功,好像是因为打破了藩篱,但他其实并没有什么颠覆性的创新。所以后面列举的人,都和「同时」满足两个条件无关。
