In subjects, art refers to []

The following are related quotes:

“At first, he who invented any ‘art’ that went beyond the common perceptions of man, was naturally admired by men, not only because there was something useful in the inventions, but because he was thought wise and superior to the rest. But as more arts were invented, and some were directed to the necessities of life, others to its recreation, the inventors of the latter were always regarded as wiser than the inventors of the former, because there branches of knowledge did not aim at utility. Hence, when all such inventions were already established, the sciences which do not aim at giving pleasure or at the necessities of life, were discovered, and first in the places where men first began to have leisure. This is why the ‘mathematical’ arts were founded in Egypt; for there the priestly caste was allowed to be at leisure.”
Aristotle (c.350), Metaphysics (pg. 1553) [1]
