At the crossroads of ethics and aesthetics

Philosophy and Literature 34 (1):pp. 248-259 (2010)
  Copy   BIBTEX


Art, Emotion, and Ethics is a brilliant book with many important, useful, insightful, and even profound things to say about a range of topics including the relation of the imagination to art, understanding, and ethics, and the paradox of fiction, as well as sensitive and in-depth interpretations of masterpieces by the likes of Rembrandt and Nabokov. It is very convincing in its jousts with autonomists for people like me who favor the view that sometimes ethical blemishes are aesthetic blemishes and sometimes ethical merits count as aesthetic merits. But that is because I am not an autonomist or even a moderate autonomist.
