[AUDIO] Art and Morality
Spencer Giel

09 March 2017

It is not unusual for pieces of art, such as literature or cinema, to address moral questions. However, is art not seen as entertainment by most? Does its role as entertainment affect its ability to comment on morality?  Does art have something to offer on ethical questions that other fields, such as philosophy, cannot offer?

What exactly is the relationship that exists between art and morality? Can art truly teach us about morality, and if so, how? Aesthetics bites speaks with Eileen John from the University of Warwick in this short podcast.
