and falsity; it is a curiosity rather than a work of art. Principle 2: By looking at Asuka’s very symbolic paintings, we are compelled to accept her vision of a world in which discourse is by sight rather than by sound. Principle 3: Perhaps the most far-reaching impact of Asuka’s art is its revelation of the horrors of encaging chimps; surely beings who can reach these heights of sublimely abstract expression should not see the world through iron bars. Principle 4: Dear Zookeeper: Please encourage Asuka to keep painting, as the vibrant colors and intense brushstrokes of her canvases fill all of us with delight. Principle 5: I never thought I would wish to feel like an ape, but Asuka’s art made me appreciate how chimps enjoy perceiving us humans as chumps. Principle 6: This is not art, for no ape’s product can convey the highest, most valuable, human states of mind. Principle 7: Whether by the hand of ape or man, that the canvases attributed to June show lovely shapes and colors is indisputable. IM – 12 | 8

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
