Are certain artistic mediums more adept at expressing human experience than others?

Yes, here they are in order from most to least adept at expressing the human experience: 1. Theater (plays) 2. Movies 3. Novels (and short stories) 4. Music 5. Dance 6. Painting 7. Sculpture 8. Architecture Who says philosophers can't give straight, objective-looking answers to questions that clearly don't have a single correct answer? Anyway, that's my answer, and I could give arguments for that ordering, but others could surely give arguments for a different ordering (or for none at all). If philosophy counts as an art form, then it comes in somewhere right above or below novels (says the English major who abandoned it for philosophy!)
