Esthiek: Kunst en morele afstemming

Translated title of the contribution: Aesthics: Art and Moral Attuning

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleProfessional


Art can help us understand everyday moral deliberation. Better perhaps than ethics. People don’t just act randomly in moral situations nor do they argue internally about which ethical principle to follow before deciding what to do. We built our moral sensitivity whilst living our lives, adhering to aesthetic norms of interaction. Regular engagement with works of art educates our moral sensitivity.
