Collingwood on the Moral Principles of Art
"This book addresses the apparent contradiction in moral condemnation of good artworks. Since there is no direct contradiction, it must involve a third thing that connects aesthetic value and moral value. A significant view about this third thing results from combining R. G. Collingwood's aesthetic and moral theories, and articulating a theory of judgment on his behalf. The view is that an artwork is aesthetically good if the artist fulfilled the moral duty to express emotion successfully. Why this matters and how it fits into the larger conversation about morality and art round out this book's study."--BOOK JACKET.
