Both moralists and artists deal in values .Raising values is the aim of both the good moralist and the good artist. Trying to lower values is morally evil and artistically corrupt.


As a musician, I’ve often thought: Music expresses that which must be said, but can not be put into words

I’ve never considered that “artists deal in values, or that raising values is the aim of a good artist”

Would you be so kind as to elaborate on this? I would be interested to know of a few artists who’s aim is raising values - or even who’s concern is with value.

And this even allows for a broader use of the term artist - not solely limited to drawing or painting (which, is what personally comes to mind when I hear the broad/generic term “artist”).
