El valor moral del arte y la emoción (The Moral Value of Art and Emotion)

Crítica 38 (114):69 - 92 (2006)
Frente al moralismo moderado, este ensayo defiende una forma de autonomismo moderado. Reconoce que en ocasiones la obra de arte excita emociones moralmente inadecuadas sin que ello impida su comprensión, y que esto podría contribuir a la clarificación de nuestra vida mental. El autonomismo moderado sostiene que el carácter autónomo de la obra de arte, representacional o ficcional, permite relajar nuestras exigencias morales. Sólo cuando la falsedad perjudica la verosimilitud se puede producir el fracaso de la obra: no por provocar emociones moralmente inadecuadas, sino al presentar como verdadero en la ficción algo falso o incoherente con la verdad en realidad. /// Against modérate moralism, the essay defends a version of moderate autonomism. It claims that works of art sometimes provoke morally inadequate emotions without preventing the understanding of the work, and that they may serve to clarify mental life. Moderate autonomism holds that the autonomous nature of works of art, as representational or fictional, permits relaxing moral commitment. Only in case of falsehood obstructing verisimilitude, may the work fail, and then, not because of provoking morally wrong responses, but as a result of displaying as truth in fiction something plainly false or incoherent in life.
