One way to start is to focus on a specific artistic good and try to be as detailed and as empirical as possible in thinking about what the economic and cultural value of that good is in a specific social context. Thus you need to approach the concept of “value” as a historically grounded social process, identifying both the individuals and communities that participate in this process.
