Defining "Style" (with a Strategy for General Reform of Theatre Terminology).
This discussion of the term "style" as it relates to the arts points to the need for reform in the terminology and the conceptual system of the drama profession. The paper first lists the basic tasks of conceptual and terminological reform and then outlines the steps necessary in reforming a particular term. These procedures are applied to a specific analysis of "style" and its meanings, resulting in the following tentative definition: "style" refers to the pattern of strategically individualized choices (of either matter or form) made within the latitude of an implicitly or explicitly defined task.
