[219b] (utensils we call them), and the art of imitation—all these might properly be called by one name.

How so, and what is the name?

When anyone brings into being something which did not previously exist, we say that he who brings it into being produces it and that which is brought into being is produced.


Now all the arts which we have just mentioned direct their energy to production.

Yes, they do.

Let us, then, call these collectively the productive art.
