This paper replies to objections from Thomas Adajian, Stephen Davies, and Robert Stecker to my claim, defended in "'Art" as a Cluster Concept', that 'art' is a cluster concept and so cannot be defined. The paper also clarifies and extends the arguments of the earlier paper and locates its position in relation to the work of Morris Weitz.
