chapter
Art and morality
An introduction
ByJosé Luis Bermúdez, Sebastian Gardner
Pages 18

The relations between art and morality are manifold and complex, and the contributions to this collection do full justice to the richness of the subject matter. The contributors are all agreed that the realm of the aesthetic cannot, and should not, be divorced from the realm of the moral, but this general idea is worked out in as many ways as there are papers. Our aim in this introduction is to introduce the main themes and problems broached by the individual contributors and to sketch out some features of the more general framework within which the individual papers can be located.
