9780025002432: Art the Arts & the Great Ideas

Do musical compositions, paintings, or ballets have anything at all to say about the great ideas? This book by philosopher Mortimer J. Adler, is a carefully constructed fine-tuning of the elements central to his successful treatise on education, "The Paideia Proposal". In this book, Dr Adler challenges readers to precision in language, tracing the historical permutations of pivotal words like art, idea, and significance. In an examination of the central question how are the great ideas related to art and the arts, the author adjusts his Paideia reform of liberal education.
