This collection treats the topic of the situation of the arts in Western, and specifically American, culture. The book's main purpose is to explain and, in part remedy, the anomalous position of the arts in US culture and consequently, in the US educational system. It examines the relationship between art and ideology, epistemology, and education; it also wrestles with the problem of morality and art, and discusses new ways to approach the arts in education. The work incorporates close readings of Plato, Coleridge, Dewey, and Read on the arts.
